Mansions return with synthy ‘Deserter’ EP (listen to “Heel Theme”)

Mansions is/are back, baby. New tunes coming, one of which is streaming at the link.

via Brooklyn Vegan:

We’re premiering the EP’s first single, “Heel Theme.” which does have a noticeable electronic influence, but they haven’t fully abandoned their rock side or anything. It’s got some pretty heavy riffs, and it’s also a lot darker than the power pop of Doom Loop. Christopher still has his trademark boyish vocals, which sorta fall somewhere between Ben Gibbard and Andy Hull, and his naturally lighthearted sound makes for an appealing juxtaposition with the song’s darkness. Listen below.

I've grabbed my copies of the vinyl and cassette at Bad Timing, so you are now free to do so also.
