Hailing from Portsmouth, the South Coast's very own Shelbyville, is Ban Summers. Melodically rich lo-fi slacker pop, his first demo Truly Madly Sleeply arrived in the Vapour Trail inbox sometime between the last episode of Twin Peaks and the last episode of Naked Attraction.
Taking cues from (SANDY) Alex G and Kurt Vile, it's blissed out bedroom pop that enters the world at just the right time (June). Luscious guitar tones echo through a sun-kissed soundscape as Summers' lackadaisical voice lilts atop.
It's the first track from an upcoming artist who, contrary to Truly Madly Sleeply's lyrics is Something To Ride Home About. Hear it below...
Also catch him next month in Southsea, as he plays our dear friends Strong Island Recs' Beach Ball... 15th May, the Wave Maiden. Be there or be square.
