CITY CALM DOWN | Dare-Burn Slow EP
Australia’s City Calm Down is one of those band’s that most people have never heard before, but I relish in having heard. Now’s your chance to listen to two tracks from a new EP, “Dare | Burn Slow”, a follow-up to the four-piece’s stellar list of melodic, and nuanced 80s-burnished beauties. Lead singer Jack Bourke just sent me a bandcamp link where you can purchase the new songs, along with more of the band’s music. Listen to “Dare” below. It’s a track about love and limits. There’s a dark, passionate new wave sound to it, mixed in with the upbeat synth and accenting guitar. Click here to read an archived 2010 Their Bated Breath interview with Bourke. You can follow the band on soundcloud and on facebook. — David D. Robbins Jr.
