Listen: Basement’s new song “Summer’s Colour”

on June 19, 2014, 7:00am

After announcing an “indefinite hiatus” in 2012, U.K.-based emo outfit Basement have decided to reunite and come back with a brand new EP. Entitled Further Sky, it’s out on July 29th via Run For Cover Records. The upcoming release features three tracks, including a cover of Suede’s “Animal Nitrate” and the recently shared lead single “Summer’s Colour”.

Doused in shoegaze-inflected guitars and shimmering distortion, “Summer’s Colour” sees frontman Andrew Fisher sounding a little more subdued in his delivery than in the past, smoothening some of the rough vocal edges found on their 2012 album, Colourmekindness. It’s by far one of the more welcoming tracks of Basement’s discography, accessible even over the raging instruments. Listen in below.

In support of the new EP, they’re returning to Australia, Japan, and the U.S. for a summer tour. Check out the dates below.
