And So I Watch You From Afar – Straight Through The Sun


I’d be cheating if I called this a review, because I only have a few words to say about the actual single. Nonetheless it is more than worthy of a mention, so…

Northern Ireland’s And So I Watch You From Afar have a new single out, which is available as a free download in return for a Tweet or a Facebook post. Go here to find out how to get Straight Through the Sun. As is to be expected from the band it is a lush little slice of instrumental rock, well worth clicking a wee button on your computer screen for.
The single is also available on 7″ vinyl, backed with the B-Side Without A Fuckin’ Scratch. If you own a record player you should by this, because that b-side is excellent. Close to six minutes of peaks and troughs, with an almighty ear blistering meltdown that sneaks up on you from nowhere.
The two tracks have made my day a whole lot more bearable, which is as good a recommendation as you can get.
The 7″ is available on And So I Want You From Afar’s upcoming tour and from the Small Town America website.
And So I Watch You From Afar only have one stop in Scotland on their tour, you can catch them at King Tut’s on November 26th, supported by the also loud and lovely Tubelord and Carnivores. You did want tinnitus for Christmas, aye? You can buy tickets for that here.
