Upcoming Release: FAST YEARS – Women EP

June 22, 2012

Bandcamp / Facebook / Twitter

When we received the email introducing us to Brooklyn indie-surf-pop quartet FAST YEARS we didn’t know what to expect because, well, we’d never heard of the band before. After one listen though, it’s obvious their new EP is going to be on repeat for some time here at The iM.

Now that we have your attention, stream the Women EP in the embed below – honestly there’s not a song on it we don’t like. If you’re looking for a starting point though, check out the first single off the EP, Young Heart – you can even download it for free at the Bandcamp link above. In case you’re wondering (like we were), you can grab your very own copy as of June 25th.
