The Skinny: Toronto-based foursome The Dying Arts is getting ready to unleash their self-titled debut EP on June 3, 2014. Recorded with wunderkind producer/engineer Jon Drew (Alexisonfire, Fucked Up, Tokyo Police Club), a preview of the five-track EP track was released today in the form of the frenetic and infectious single “Scratch” available just above via the SoundCloud player.
Raw, raucous, and unapologetic, the songs span the gamut from the lead single “Scratch,” with its combustible punk core that mutates into a shoegaze coda seemingly lifted from My Bloody Valentine’s Loveless, to the more subdued, shadowy take on infectious indie rock that is “Control,” showcasing the band’s impressive breadth of influence and output.
The Dying Arts EP Track Listing:
02. Bed Spins
