After a few great singles, Sacramento’s Julian Never steps up for a debut LP on Mt.St.Mtn. The band is the work of Julian Elorduy (MAYYORS), and he takes a dive into the smudged neon flicker of new wave, jangle-pop, power pop, and deep cut West Coast jukebox b-sides. The first single, “High School” is a driving, strident cut that lets the music slip into soft focus, glowing warmly beneath the rain-slicked vocals. With the help of bassist Mark Kaiser (MAYYORS, Male Gaze) Elorduy drives the single straight into the subconscious, humming away like the buried memories in the folds. Pious Fiction is out January 13th from Mt.St.Mtn.
