Basement Revolver – Words

Ontario-based trio Basement Revolver is the kind of band who doesn’t struggle to find a room in the pure hearts with a soft spot for old school dream-pop. We introduced them for the first time premiering their debut single Johnny. The reasons why we loved that song are the same for which we share its follow-up Words. In summary: DYI approach, nostalgic waves of reverberated guitars and twee-tinged melancholic vocals. Fans of their fellow countrymen Alvvayss will surely dig this.

Speaking about Words, singer Chrisy Hurn explains: “‘Words’ was written when I was in my last semester of university. I was writing my honours psych thesis at the time, as well as many other papers, when it all began to feel meaningless. No matter what I said, in the end, words are just words, they can be stringed together to form something powerful but without context they become as mundane and uncontrollable as one’s commute to and from school. Similarly, a paper is just a paper, a degree is just a degree, and there is so much more to life than the plans and the empires that we build for ourselves.

Basement Revolver first EP will be released on July 15th via Fear Of Missing Out Records.
