Melancholic jangle-pop from the UK
Tomorrow, Bristol-based duo Yard Arms, comprised of longtime collaborators Noah Villeneuve and Billy Golding, will share their sophomore EP A Glossary of Broken Humans & Beating Hearts. As their previous releases suggest, the new record is going to be full of late noughties euphoria and heartfelt melancholy.
A Glossary of Broken Humans & Beating Hearts, unlike their first EP Maiden, which was an exploration of heartache and a relationship breakdown, instead focuses more outwardly and is a commentary on the human condition, mental health and trauma. The lyrics present a refreshingly honest take on suffering and hurt, delving into the lives of Villeneuve's close companions from the past 18 months.
The collection of tracks creates an enchanting world to escape to, allowing you to revel in emotional catharsis. Musically, the EP's dynamic is reminiscent of artists such as The National, Death Cab For Cutie, The Cure, American Football as well as The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and borrows a page or two from Blink 182's self-titled 2003 record.
Listen to latest single 'Comfortable' for a first glimpse into A Glossary of Broken Humans & Beating Hearts:
A Glossary of Broken Humans & Beating Hearts will be out on November 1.
