The Aviation Orange – “Trammels”
July 6th, 2010 • Introducing
Back in March, we toured with a Brooklyn band called The Aviation Orange all the way from New York to Austin, where they played a series of showcases at SXSW.
Their melodic, synth pop sound, much like Hot Fuss era Killers, references seminal British groups of the 1980s (Smiths, Echo & The Bunnymen, New Order), and has led to critical acclaim from venerable press outlets in their native NYC – not to mention their video for ‘Radio’ being rotated heavily on MTV last year and notching up over 20,000 hits on YouTube.
Their self-titled, self-released debut has been out for some time (available from our good friends at RethinkPopMusic, where you can also download ‘Darling Johnny’ for free), but they’ve just posted a new track online called ‘Trammels’ which is a taster from their forthcoming EP, out later this year if it all goes to plan.
Relaxed, nonchalant boy-girl vocals, chiming guitar lines and an alarmingly catchy “oh-oh” refrain. It’s very good. Listen to it below:
