Tony Molina has his roots in the West Coast punk scene, attending shows when he was just a kid.
Since then, though, his approach to songwriting has broadened, with new album 'Kill The Lights' matching impeccable guitar pop to a raw, DIY sound.
An album that recalls everyone from, says, The Byrds to Allah-Las or even The Proper Ornaments, the wiry guitar tones are matched to some beautifully rendered songwriting.
Out on July 27th - pre-order LINK - via Slumberland, we're able to preview the album by sharing new cut 'Jasper's Theme'.
A bittersweet return, it's an ode to friendship that could take pride of place on Teenage Fanclub's 'Grand Prix' record were it not so resolutely West Coast in its outlook.
"I named this song after my buddy Jasper who made the album with me. He played drums and tambourine on this song and it was his idea to add the harmony to the chorus part. It was also the first song we demo’d together for this record. That is why its called 'Jasper’s Theme'.”
Tune in now.
