Album Stream: The Submarines - Shoelaces EP

Music  |  Audio

As if there weren’t enough musical reasons to hail December, Los Angeles indie-pop duo The Submarines will be releasing their six-track Shoelaces EP, which features bare-boned versions of “Shoelaces” and “Fire,” two popular tracks from their most recent and highly acclaimed album Love Notes/Letter Bombs. Months of touring left the band itching to recreate the tracks without the elaborate arrangement and extraneous instruments.

“We really wanted to capture this simple sound of two people playing in a room together,” Blake Hazard said “Going back and sort of reconstructing them felt more intimate and connected.”

The new release will also feature two covers: New Order’s “Your Silent Face” as well as Jesus and Mary Chain’s “Just Like Honey.” Although the EP isn’t released until December 20, you can take a listen to the album in full in the player below (pre-order the EP now and get a free pair of awesome Submarines shoelaces).
