Picture the tumultuous nature of trying to keep up with it all, seeing the future speeding away as you wonder why you are are still in the rear view mirror. The 21st century zeitgeist is a stern courtesan that capital dwellers The Pylons know all to well. Encapsulating the never ending spinning-wheel of modern day life, the free-spirited quintet have returned to the fore with their zealous and ever-consuming new instalment. ‘The Chase’ draws from a compendium of indie-rock facets, blissfuly unafraid to chew the meat and spit out the bones.
This overstuffed slice of introspection is the first in a trinity of singles to grace the airwaves before the release of their debut EP ‘Thanks For Coming’ in the autumn. With a refreshingly laissez-faire attitude and an arena-grade sound, The Pylons have addressed an enthralling memorandum to the unsung.
“Pylons have a squeaky clean sound you can tell has been perfected with time” – Fresh on the Net
“One of the best things I’ve heard today, this is SO good!” – Sarah Gosling – Clash Magazine
When it comes to sonics, The Pylons are millennial maximalists. They say you can’t have your cake and eat it, but it seems the London-based quintet have unapologetically misheard. Mondegreen’s aside, their matryoshka doll of influences boils alternative indie down into its salient essentials, fusing the psychedelia of Tame Impala with Arcade Fire’s punchy pop-tinged anthology. It’s gloriously garish at times, gorging on a polished smorgasbord of splashy distortion, and vibrant synth-work.
Garnering attention from the likes of BBC Radio 1, RADIO 6, these five multifaceted free-thinkers are unafraid to throw caution to the wind as they seek to frame the capricious nature of reality through rose-tinted eyes.
