Hideous Towns, the quartet of indiepop genii hailing from Melbourne, make their Lost And Lonesome debut with the new single 'Heart Attack' available to order now on 7” vinyl (hand-numbered and with a lipstick kiss from the band!), with orders shipping from July 16.
'Heart Attack' follows Hideous Towns’ two previous self-releases — 2014’s 'Don’t Look Up' single and subsequent self-titled EP — and finds Alana West’s distinctive vocals swooning and swaying atop waves of glorious guitars variously crashing, jangling and trembling.
Whilst fervently taking their cues from indiepop’s guitar-led antecedents, Hideous Towns succeed at effortlessly dipping into post-punk, new wave and dreampop, arriving ultimately at a sound that is luminous, honest and bold.
Recorded and mixed by Matthew Hosking (VHS Dream) and mastered by Mikey Young (Dick Diver, Twerps), 'Heart Attack' is an exciting instalment in what is shaping up to be an impressive body of work.
