Before the likes of Peace, Swim Deep, Jaws, and Troumaca decided it was their natural born right to fly the flag for the Birmingham indie music scene, there were a whole host of excellent bands who were doing something a little different, a little more abrasive, and little more, dare I say it, edgy. Today we’re talking about Calories, who are totally back.
Oh, Calories. I’ve missed you. DMT, is the title of the quartet’s new four track EP, released yesterday on a pay-what-you-want basis. It harks back to the days of their phenomenal debut album Adventuring released way back in early 2009. It’s melodic, patient in its delivery, catchy as hell, and so feel-good it makes me wonder whether anything bad will ever happen to the world again. It would have taken something special to tear me away from listening to the new Local Natives record, and this EP was my saving grace. Cause, Hummingbird is depressing me, in a good way.
But seriously, download DMT, for free, right now, or y’know, give Calories a treat, and pay something for it.
Watch the video for the title-track below, and download the EP, below that.
