Guards Announce New Single 'Ready To Go' Released 22nd April 2013

Guards release their new single, 'Ready To Go' on 22nd April 2013. It precedes the release of their debut album 'In Guards We Trust' on the 29th April 2013 through Partisan Records.

New York City's Guards don't mess around. Their debut album, 'In Guards We Trust' erupts from the speakers, a whirlwind of Phil Spector atmospherics, stomping drums, hazy spiralling guitar lines, and harmony-drenched psychedelic pop vocals. The songs harness big hooks and choruses with enough fuzz-pedal to keep things suitably lo-fi, but with more melodies in each song than many bands manage over the course of an album.

"Ready To Go" is a bold, hook-laden pop song drenched in psychedelic guitars. It reverberates with an effortlessness that makes Guards so arresting, and is another fine introduction to this new band.

You might be aware of Guards' protagonist already. Richie Follin is the guitarist in indie-pop band Cults. While on tour, Follin and Cults drummer Loren Humphrey (who Follin worked with in garage-rock band The Willowz) spent much of their downtime writing songs and getting ideas down onto tape. The resulting demos, with Follin on lead vocals, sounded fresh and exciting, and thus Guards were born. The band became a very real prospect when LA friend, Kaylie Church joined on keyboards and dual-vocals.

'In Guards We Trust' shares an affinity with sixties pop-psychedelia, and evokes all the colour and imagery of that era. And it's a record that resonates with the depth and intelligence of musicians that understand and, indeed, trust each other intrinsically.

Exceeding expectations is why Guards exist as a band in the first place.
