Ever since the much-beloved Newtown, CT indie rock band Ovlov broke up, got back together, broke up and got back together again, and then reissued their excellent throwback compilation of early material, desperate Ovlov fans have been clamoring for some new music from the fuzz rock favorites.
Well Ovlov fans, rejoice! the recently resurrected band has announced their new record TRU will be coming out on July 20th via hip NYC label Exploding In Sound Records and have shared its first single, “Spright.” While the new tune contains that trademark fuzz distortion that defines the band’s aesthetic, it also trades some of that fiercer garage-punk energy for a comforting midtempo.
TRU can be preordered at Exploding in Sound’s bandcamp here.
Ovlov will be playing MAC Gallery in Middletown, CT with Two Inch Astronaut, Queen Moo, and Hellrazor on July 15th. Event page here.
