Wymond Miles, lead guitarist of San Francisco garage-pop outfit the Fresh And Onlys, will release his sophomore solo LP, Cut Yourself Free, this October via Sacred Bones. To give fans a preview of what his forthcoming album has in store, Miles took to Soundcloud to share his new track, “Passion Plays.”
Like many current songs on the garage rock spectrum, “Passion Plays” operates in a post Turn On The Bright Lights and Is This It world. Everything from the track’s sprawling guitar leads to its heavy, pulsating bassline, to its desperate baritone melody, starkly resembles the aforementioned virtual saviors of guitar-based rock ‘n’ roll. Nonetheless, homages can be poor or proper, and with “Passion Plays,” Wymond Miles does his influences justice. Check out the track below.
