Soak up Tinmouth’s riotous new single “Prevent Defense,” see them tonight at Johnny Brenda’s
Philly rock trio Tinmouth has been kicking around the city for a couple of years now, playing bills with the likes of Eternal Summers, Free Time, and Dent May while refining their brand of fuzzy, college rock. A self-described bunch of “reformed romantics, somewhere beyond Missed Connections and Casual Encounters,” the band both distills and pays tribute to classic rock tropes, creating something exciting and warmly familiar.
They’re now fresh out of the studio, having just finished recording their debut LP Says with local producer Jeff Zeigler (Kurt Vile, The War on Drugs). The full record won’t be out until the fall—but in the meantime, they’ve shared “Prevent Defense”—a warm, ramshackle slice of noise-pop that recollects all your fave ‘90s bands (think: Pavement, YLT, GBV) and has us seriously psyched for the rest of the record. They play Johnny Brenda’s tonight, opening for the equally delightful Bishop Allen; below soak up their sounds, then get ready for an evening of breezy, summer pop.
