Keith Abrams, outside from his band Pine Barons, has a side project Tremellow. Its lo-fi pop stylings allow Abrams to let his weird out a little bit, and it can’t be better exemplified than in the video for his newest song “Plastic Impulse,” released on DOOM PASTE, a split with Haggert Mctaggert (the weird side project of The Districts’ Braden Lawrence).
Recalling the sounds of modern weirdos like Teen Suicide and Elvis Depressedly, the found-footage stylization goes hand-in-hand with the super DIY feeling pop song. Filled with ripping guitars and dancing drums, Abram’s project is instantly intriguing, nailing modern at-home tunes mixed with The Cure-like intensity. If you’re looking to branch out from your Top 40 dome, this would be a great place to start.
Watch the video below, and stream the split as well. Also, be sure to keep your ears and eyes out for a new Pine Barons LP called The Acchin Book later this year.
