Pacing Party: "fine' (Punknews Exclusive)

Pacing Party: "fine' (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new album by Pacing Party.

fine is an expansive album, flitting from massive U2-like melodies to hard driving Vines riffage to Cure-ish dream pop to everything in between. Daniel Gardner, who helms the project, spoke to Punknews about the release: "'fine' as a whole is a very melodramatic, indulgent record. It's pretty all-over-the-place musically, and is packed with sexual frustration, and angst. While it may feel a bit young or naive at times, I hope people will be able to feel the honesty in the songs, and relate with the raw, genuine emotions they convey."

Pre-order the band's new album Fine right here- ir's due out tomorrow. Meanwhile, check out the new LP below, right now.
