Turkish dreampop/shoegaze quartet The Away Days have shared the first track, “Best Rebellious”, from their upcoming EP, This, set for release on the 19th January 2015. The EP also features “Calm Your Eyes” and acoustic versions of each song. They tour Europe in December.
The track, a more sombre effort than previous singles “Paris” and “Your Colour”, apparently takes inspiration from India and the Far East. The song is certainly more hypnotic and spiralling than previous efforts, marking a move towards more ethereal, otherworldly territory for the group.
The Away Days will return to the UK as part of a European tour. Catch the band on the following dates:
5th Dec: London, Old Blue Last, UK
7th Dec: London, Shacklewell Arms, UK
8th Dec: Brighton, Bleach w/ JAWS, UK
