Probably one of the most exciting bands to emerge this year are Oakland-based Trails And Ways. They caught our attention with songs "Nunca" and "Mtn Tune," and totally blew us away with their cover of M83's "Midnight City."
So today, we're stroked to be premiering their new single "Border Crosser," off their upcoming full-length debut Trilingual. Quoting the band's official press release:
The track "Border Crosser" is immigration dreampop in it's purest form. It was written by our singer KBB as a love letter between his grandparents circa 1942. The melody traces their emigration out of europe, through the middle-east, and finally to the sunny shores of California. It's made of train whistles, tense synths and pulsing guitar lines. Echoing across the Alps, we hope to evoke a dark, smooth hallucination of a love song.
For those of you in California, the band has two shows coming this week:
10/24 - SF@ Brick and Mortar Music Hall with White Arrows
10/25 - LA @ Bootleg Bar with Paper Route and Faded Paper Figures
