Words: Saam Das
I still vaguely remember receiving an anonymous email from CYMBALS sometime in 2010 pointing us in the direction of their Pavement meets Talking Heads-inspired anthems. I believe they even managed to convince one blogger that they were Swedish. I might be making that up though. Anyway, one album down the line, the London quartet are back with a new effervescent offering, from the same mould as those early demos.
Combining synth lines and jerky guitar pop, much like their very early - download their 'Kennel District' cover below, CYMBALS have yet again pulled something special out of the bag. This is the first taste of new eight track release 'Sideways, Sometimes', which is the follow up to debut LP, 'Unlearn' and is released on 23rd April on Tough Love. Download another, more serene, cut from the album entitled 'Intense Kids' from Tough Love, or listen to it below.
