On September 30, London indie pop outfit the History Of Apple Pie will release their second LP, Feel Something, on Marshall Teller. Taken as a demand, there’s some power to that title, and so far everything we’ve heard from Feel Something hits just as hard. The first taste of the record, Tame, moves along with a jaunty piano, but is also undercut by a palpably dark, psychedelic undercurrent.
 
The second single, which the band unveiled earlier today, is Jamais Vu. Like Tame, Jamais Vu finds the History Of Apple Pie largely abandoning the shoegazey guitars that characterized their debut, Out Of View, in favor of a bigger, cleaner sound. On Jamais Vu, the drums and guitars are louder and crisper than they’ve ever been, and Stephanie Min’s vocal melodies are swooping and infectious. The song sounds like a lost early ’90s alt-rock anthem, and that’s really not a bad thing. Check it out below.
