Solids | Wait It Out

I really really like rock music. I grew up with my Dads frighteningly typical collection of Led Zeppelin LPS, discovered grunge like any tragic angst-ridden middle class kid and then flitted around Death Cab and the like once I’d discovered that I had real feelings and unrequited love is poetic or some bollocks. Anyway, the point is, you give me guitars and a decent amount of introspection and I will probably dig what you’ve got going on hence Solids new track “Wait It Out.”

Theres something distinctly 90s about their sound. Slightly muddy and almost monotone in pace it reminds me of early Modest Mouse and Built To Spill records with their effortless guitars weaving some kind of melodic discourse over a steady pace. Taking me straight back to Dramamine, “Wait it Out” is a track that would not be out of place on a cassette you burned for your 90s pixie chick girlfriend before you took her for a milkshake at one of those diners I see on American TV all the time but never actually experienced due to having grown up in a part of the UK where cow shit is used as currency.

“Wait It Out” is due out the forthcoming EP “Else” on the 15th April this year (duh) on Topshelf Records and is absolutely worth picking out. Also a lovely little European tour is planned because “Solids” are the gift that keep on bloody giving.
