Like Teenage Fanclub and Sonic Youth had a kid that grew up on The Brat Pack and crippling self-doubt, “Wrings” announces Miners’ debut EP ‘Pala’. It’s plucky and packed with feedback, not the variety that turns listeners away but the kind that cocoons your head between the expensive headphones you should be listening to this on. Sweeping guitars combat with forlorn vocals, jangly riffs pacing themselves until they tumble into careeening squall.
Likening themselves to mentors Day Ravies (who’s Sam Wilkinson is releasing the EP under his Strange Pursuits label), Miners snap in and out with a swooning and efficient jam that every pedal nerd is going to be salivating over. You can catch ’em when they play The Record Crate on the 3rd of October w/ Draining Pool and Milkk.
