New Young Agings: Before I Go

Given how common this beach-adjacent sound has become in recent years, it is…weird (?) hearing Before I Go and being transported back to the first half of the decade. This is basically a Teen Runnings album, maybe a little less fuzzy (well, save for inclusions like “Unconsciousness” which go big on feedback) around the edges but containing the same driving tempos and ennui that populate that group’s music. See the giddy rush of “My Universe” or the slightly slower chug of “Remember Me” — this is right in line with that other group, and every bit as sticky. And still miles better than a lot of outfits that arrived later. Get it here, or listen below.
