Dam Gila shares new single ‘What Fire’

Dam Gila

Dam GilaSince forming in 2009, Chicago’s YAWN has released a handful of widely-praised EPs and LPs, toured with acts like Tame Impala, Mates of State, and Yuck, and won fans over with their synthy, psych-infused sound. When not playing with the band, frontman Adam Gil crafts his own sunny psych-pop tunes as Dam Gila, and now he shares a track from his upcoming EP, ‘Face the Sun,’ which is due out on April 1st via Joyful Noise Recordings. You can stream What Fire, the EP’s opening track, via Soundcloud below.

‘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.
