“Silver Lining” is the first taste of the new album by Guards, the three piece indie rock band fronted by Richie James Follin (whose sister Madeline Follin is in Cults). The band’s album, In Guards We Trust, is out on February 5th. In case you missed their delicious EP – released in July/2010 – you can download it here. Guards also includes Loren Ted Humphrey & Kaylie Church and specialize in rough around the edges, highly melodic rock and roll with waves of lush guitars and lots of attention to pop detail; sort of like The Raspberries and Primal Scream meet Teenage Fanclub and Phil Spector. The band is currently out on tour with Two Door Cinema Club; they play the Electric Factory this Saturday evening, September 29th. Go here for tickets and more information about the show.
