The Avenues – Moving Car
(Released 9th July 2021)
Since forming in 2018, Hull four-piece The Avenues have built a steady following both within their hometown, and across the North of England. With their debut EP What Happened In The Pink Room earning the band comparisons to the likes of The Cribs, Spector and Franz Ferdinand, not to mention a support slot with legendary indie poppers The Bluetones in their hometown, things were looking up for the four piece.
That was until COVID hit. Rather than wallow in the shadow of cancelled shows and the haze of uncertainty that was surrounding the music industry for much of 2020 however, The Avenues spent that time honing their sound in order to craft the perfect follow-up EP.
Coming quickly off the back of their recent single ‘Part of the Problem’, ‘Moving Car’ is an equally intelligent take on the band’s trademark ramshackle indie-pop. Interested in exploring ideas of existential dread, of seizing the day and making the most of the time we’re given, ‘Moving Car’ is four minutes of upbeat and optimistic indie pop that continues The Avenues’ ascent to the top of their game.
