Guards Hunger TV Mixtape by The Hunger on Mixcloud

Meet Guards. A New York based trio with a dreamy West Coast sound that is 100% authentic hipster cool – they may look as if they’re not trying very hard but don’t be fooled, this is one very talented group of individuals with an accomplished album to match. Comprising of Richie Follin, Loren Humphrey and Kaylie Church, the band are set to take the summer music scene by storrn with the recent release of their debut album ‘In Guards We Trust’, which has all the ingredients to be an indie-pop hit.

To pigeonhole them as simply an indie band, however, is to do the bands unique collection of immersive songs a disservice. There is a supremely effective and overriding ‘wall of sound’ aesthetic evident throughout the album although how they achieve this live is beyond us, and a credit to their musicianship and skill as a group.

Their latest single ‘Ready To Go’ is accompanied by a super cute 60’s inspired video, undoubtedly an homage to those early teen years where innocence and sexuality collide. More than the video though it is the equally compelling soundtrack with its mesmerizing harmonies and suitably understated melody’s, which has us yearning for long days, hot summer nights, and a hefty dose of Guards on the turntable. That’s right, we’re going all in with the retrospective vibe on this one and opting for vinyl – it would be rude not to!
