The new 7″ single from The Fresh & Onlys guitarist Wymond Miles is a straight double shot of fiery melodrama. A-side “Passion Plays” is a darkly atmospheric post-punk cut that Miles’ described lyrically as ”an open book of feverish confusion with love affairs, the ties that bind, and the blades that cut us free.” It’s rhythmic, driving, and snarling rock-noir. Meanwhile, the B-side is a cover of The Terminals’ cut “Batwing.” He’s joined by Fresh & Onlys’ Shayde Sartin on bass and Kelley Stoltz on drums. I’ll go ahead and say it: this will probably be one of the best singles you’ll buy all year (that wasn’t released by us of course).
Go ahead, buy a copy from Sacred Bones.
