London shoegazers’ S.C.U.M have announced their first single from the forthcoming album, Again Into Eyes (due in September via Mute).
’Amber Hands’ comes hot on the heals of ‘Summon The Sound’ (released earlier in ’11) and treads a very similar path; mammoth shoegazey rock with slightly darkened arrangements and wistful sentiment adding to Thomas Cohen’s epic crooning drawl.
‘Amber Hands’ is out on July 18th and comes backed with mixes by Sonic Boom and Silver Apples and exclusive track ‘Fountains’. Their debut album follows in September. It’s looking very promising.
