Music: TOWNS – ‘Just Everything’

I’ve only just stumbled across these guys, and have to say so far I’m blown away. TOWNS mix early-90’s shoegaze/baggy vibes with a bit of good old Oasis style Wall Of Sound (thanks to early Oasis producer Owen Morris being involved) to make something quite exciting and refreshing. Check out their new single ‘Just Everything’ […]
