Fast Years 'Women EP' Out June 10th July
Brooklyn four-piece Fast Years play a mix of 80's Punk, Surf Pop, and Indie Garage, with influences ranging from The Sonics to The Exploding Hearts and The Vaccines. 'Young Heart' is the single taken from their forthcoming debut EP 'Women'.
- (1888PressRelease) July 24, 2012 - Fast Years all met through mutual friends in the Bushwick music scene. Their debut EP Women was recorded in Brooklyn and was inspired by Charles Bukowski, although the band admit their lyrics are nowhere near as depraved as the prose of Bukowksi.
Many of the songs on the EP were written and rehearsed in a tiny basement storage room and they're currently writing additional songs for a full length record that we hope to record at the end of the year.
Despite 'Young Heart' being their first release, they have already enjoyed support from NME (Radar), Nylon (Good Listener), Q Radio (New to Q), Amazing Radio (Mike Taylor), as well as a slew of online love including Forge Today, This Is Fake DIY, Blah Blah Blah Science, Killing Moon and The Burning Ear, and have crept into Hype Machine's Top 15 Most Popular Tracks list. Here's what people are saying about them:
