A solid double-sider from Love, Burns. The band is the work of Phil Sutton (Pale Lights, Comet Gain, Cinema Red and Blue). With back to back jangled gems on this single, Sutton quickly slots himself alongside quite a few of this other bands in terms of creating endearing indie pop. The a-side, “Wired Eyes” bursts out of the speakers on bright guitar strums and a beat that begs for movement. A touch of brass fogs in from afar, and Sutton pushes out with the kind of twanged solo that would have felt at home on a Go-Betweens burner. The flip is a bit more reserved but no less insistent in its hold. This time he’s working through early R.E.M. vibes — the kind of cut that feels like it might have worn a copy of Murmur to the nub over the years. Both are excellent reasons to pop this one into your Bandcamp queue as quick as possible. The single is out now on Calico Cat Records.
