Expensive Looks - Vanishers 7” + Twerps - She Didn’t Know 7”



Expensive Looks - Vanishers 7” - GT07

We are proud to present the first ever physical release from Expensive Looks. The introductory 7-inch features two songs, with the B-side exclusive to this release. “Vanishers” is a hazy, slow-build of electronic loops and Alec Feld’s passionate croon, diping through the echoey peaks and valleys of a teen searcher’s bedroom wail. “Simon” gets a bit more sinister with off kilter samples mixing a criss cross of varient vocal attacks. The record is just a taste of the textured dance-oriented full length that will see its release on Group Tightener this summer.
Limited to 500.

Shipping included in all prices.

1. Vanishers
2. Simon

Expensive Looks - Vanishers 7”




Twerps - She Didn’t Know 7” - GT10

After releases with both Night People and Chapter Music, Australia’s Twerps bring their dark dream-pop to Brooklyn label Group Tightener. This three song 7-inch works as a companion piece (same art split into two) to their recently released 7-inch on Under Water Peoples. “She Didn’t Know,” begins with a roar of vocals and steadily swings through delicate guitar riffs, rollicking organ jams, and playful puppy dog yelps. The first few moments of the second track, “Anything New,” are a gentle lullaby until the vocals crash in with classic the suburban conundrum of being bored but dreading change. It’s full of delightful wallowing in the desire of an impossible paradox: “I’m gonna be more than a backyard boy” but I also don’t want anything new to happen in my life. The B-side wraps up the record with a devastatingly saccharine winding ballad called “Peculia.”
Limited to 500.
