Album Stream: The Tins - Life’s A Gas
Just a week after sharing new single “Please Be Kind,” The Tins return with an album stream of their upcoming debut LP, Life’s A Gas. The three-piece out of Buffalo by way of Binghamton University teamed up with Modest Mouse producer Joe Blaney (another SUNY alum) to assure a release worthy of a warm reception.
Consisting of three instruments, two voices, and one unified sound between keyboardist/vocalist Mike Santillo, drummer Dave Muntner, and guitarist/vocalist Adam Putzer, the band’s equal creative output yields rewarding results. With tight, catchy songs falling somewhere between indie pop and alternative rock, the band gives off an experienced confidence years beyond what their still-small catalog suggests. Of course living together in a small loft above a trucking company owned by Santillo’s father and practicing every night for years after graduation probably helped. By the sound of Life’s A Gas, they’ll soon be able to afford someplace a bit more comfortable.
