Tomorrow's Shore

Ride put out a song last year, Pulsar, that ended up being one of my favourite songs of 2017- Pulsar, a  dreamy bass driven guitar song about space and life and travel. They released it on vinyl last week with 3 other new songs including this one, Catch You Dreaming, a Ride song dominated by synths. Catch You Dreaming is about a couple watching the end of the universe. I like the science fiction concepts behind these songs- makes a change from the usual guitar band stuff.

The second track on the 12", Keep It Surreal, is my current pick, a short, sharp burst of guitar mangling with a falsetto vocal. You can buy it (and the whole ep) digitally or on vinyl here.

I was playing the EP in the car this morning. For me, Pulsar is easily the standout track. I'm not overly fussed on the others, though they might grow on me with time.

Ride's is one of the more successful comebacks that I can bring to mind. Their new stuff is very strong.

As The Swede says their new stuff is very strong.I'm really loving it.
