“Silver Lining”

    Remember that time New York’s Guards dropped one hell of an EP back in 2010? Like the spunky mutant lovechild of Pixies and the Beach Boys, the seven-track debut brought a perfect breed of hazy, lo-fi alt-pop to light. Now, the band is finally gearing up for their debut LP In Guards We Trust, due out Feb. 5, 2013 from Black Bell Records/Velvet Vision. The record’s first single “Silver Lining” furthers the lyrical themes established by the Guards EP–namely youth and the yearning for immortality that comes with it. Listen to the upbeat number below.
