Following up with their first new music since dropping a self-titled EP in June, The Meltaways have shared "Flight", one of the four tracks from their upcoming self-titled 7" due out this fall. With "Flight", the trio deliver a no-nonsense, lightening-bolt of a song. Soaring guitar leads shine in the lo-fi production, and a driving drum beat ushers the track forward. The band sticks with a familiar loud-soft-loud structure but delivers the track's verses and hooks with an infectious abandon. The urgency and honesty of the performance brings the listener into the tracks's fight or flight mindset inherent in its fist-pumping grooves.
The Meltaways' S/T 7" is out 10/1 on What's For Breakfast? Records. The Meltaways play The Silent Barn 10/15 with Told Slant, Sports & Yowler & Baby's All Right 10/11 with NOTS & The World. More tour dates after the jump.
