And So I Watch You From Afar debut track from forthcoming fourth record

And So I Watch You From Afar 2015

There few bands who make me so jubilantly happy as And So I Watch You From Afar in full swing. Mathier than calculus performed whilst balancing three calculators, a pie and a triangle on a wonky tangent, the Irish quartet’s brand of instrumental rock is so infused with energy that you wonder if they’ve fallen mouth-open into an entire skip of blue Smarties.

They’ve barely let up across three records, and they’re now preparing to untether their fourth, Heirs. Today we get a first taste of that with a track called “Run Home“, which, if you’re out and unable to listen to this right now, you should do so that you can:

Apparently a good 30 tracks were written for the album over a period of 6 months, and this first is a doozy. ASIWYFA’s sparse vocal lines accent a pacey, light-hearted affair, with dancing, shredding, duelling guitars on top of a rumbling bassline and those ever-punchy drums.

Heirs comes out May (the) 4th (be with you) via Sargent House. Get your running shoes ready. Tours are incoming fast, and read a little something like this:
