unnamed (56)

Adam Gil, frontman of Chicago-based band YAWN, releases his new Face the Sun EP today. His second solo release under the moniker Dam Gila, it features sunny psych-pop made up of bright guitar tones and plenty of catchy melodies. The EP is streaming in full via Spotify, and you can watch the recently-released video for “The Undertow” here. Face the Sun is also available now on iTunes.

Face the Sun comes as a follow up to 2014’s So Long, Leisure, and once again sounds like the work of a full band, with lush layers of instrumentation and intertwined vocal harmonies. Throughout its seven tracks, catchy pop hooks are tangled in a web of dreamy, swirling guitars and propelled forward by bright percussion. The EP’s lyrics are lovelorn and dejected at times, but they’re delivered with a heavy dose of optimism.
