Indie-popsters Lemuria have been tweeting about their recent recording session with producer J. Robbins, and it seems that the songs tracked last week will see release on April 21, as a Record Store Day 7-inch. The two-song single, entitled “Varoom Allure,” comes out via the band’s label, Bridge 9. Says drummer Alex Kerns, “We are very excited about them, I think they are the two best songs we have ever written and recorded.”
Honestly, I’m happy that the trio’s next release will be a 7-inch. Their best tunes as of late (“Ozzy,” “Chautauqua County,” “Lemons”) have all been on singles, whereas the full-lengths tend to drag a bit. I’m hoping for a short, punchy, pop blast. Robbins’ production on the Rooftop Vigilantes’ Real Pony Glue makes me think that he could give Lemuria a slight edge they’ve been sorely lacking.
