Weekend – Red EP

Imagine, if you will; walking towards a stage from a far at a festival; the band in question is giving it all. Muffled voices start becoming clearer as do the instruments; everything seems to make more sense as you edge closer to grab a piece of the action. Red, the new EP from San Francisco based band Weekend does exactly this. The sudden explosion of over-distortion and white-noise is a good sign to see that Weekend are heading in the right direction.

New Song: Weekend

Late 1980s/early 1990s Shoegaze is currently undergoing period of 21st Century Renaissance, with UK bands like Yuck owing much of their sound to Dinosaur Jr. and in the USA bands like Cymbals Eat Guitars are ripping (in a good way) on Pavement. These bands a good examples of striking the right balance between nostalgia and modern relevance. Another band doing the same are San Francsico’s Weekend. ‘Hazel’ is the new track taken from their forthcoming EP Red, which will be released on September 20th courtesy of Slumberland Records.
