New Music: The Fresh & Onlys – “Presence of Mind”

Advertisement

    San Francisco garage-rock crew The Fresh & Onlys have released “Presence of Mind”, the second single off their upcoming fourth album, Long Slow Dance. While the record’s lead single “Yes or No” was steeped in ’70s rock, this latest cut utilizes a fluttery xylophone and sturdy acoustic guitar to forge a blend of simple, romantic folk-pop. Stream it below.

    Long Slow Dance hits stores September 4th via Mexican Summer. The band also recently announced a supporting tour, and you can check out that itinerary following the tracklist.
