Track Of The Day: Negative Lovers - 'Hit And Run'

The sun is still out, so it's entirely appropriate that this track should also feature on the new edition of The RW/FF Compilation, which is the ideal soundtrack to your summer. You can listen to it in full HERE. Negative Lovers are a band who I discovered after one of their members kindly dropped me a Facebook message to inform me of their existence. Glad I had the time to check them out, because this four piece from the Indonesian city of Jakarta are rather brilliant indeed. Their new EP 'Faster Lover' is released next week on July 27, and features six new tracks. The legendary Jagz Kooner has remixed the EP's lead track, and provides two new remixes for this EP, which also includes this pacy burst of woozily colourful shoegaze, which glows with sunny surf-pop vibes, fuzzed-out guitars and bright melodies.

Negative Lovers are signed to Picture In My Ear records and consist of Tony Setiaji (Vocal,Guitar), Benedict Pardede (Guitar), Yoga Indrista (Drums) and Respati Nugroho (Bass). According to their press blurb: "this Indonesian noise-rock outfit harbours dense feedback, explosive sonic layers and sheets of sky along with a voice that calls out to you from the urban shadows..." I'd say.
