Guards – “Coming True” (Stereogum Premiere)

After making a name for themselves over the past couple years in NYC (including a terrific set at our 2012 CMJ party), Guards are set to release their debut LP, In Guards We Trust, next February. We’ve got the album’s second single for you to listen to and download today. “Coming True” takes a simple new-wave riff and builds layers upon it, reaching soaring, cinematic climaxes on the chorus, showcasing singer Richie Follin’s yearning vocal, always in service of the song’s central and indelible hook. Check it out.
