This weekend, Milwaukee-based Vanity Plates debuted their first single 'Your Car' from their upcoming album, You Want To Move, out this spring. While fairly new, the band has been playing shows the past few months, previewing what was in store for their recordings. Now, we've received the official release which is a deeper glimpse into what's to come.
Mixed and mastered by Jake Beyer and recorded at Silver City Studios with Andrew Jambura, 'Your Car' is a fun-packed array of styles that showcases the group's various backgrounds and sounds. The intricate rhythms and breaks are weaved together by lead singer/guitarist Alex Shah's vocal accompaniment, while Shane Timm and Ian Worcester, on drums and bass, lead the track to a grittier sound. The single combines drum and bass heavy downbeats with interim guitar spurs that keep you enthralled until the end.
