I Like Trains: Sirens
Come July 11th the wonderful I Like Trains will be releasing ‘Sirens’ as a single from their BBO top ten of ’10 charting album He Who Saw the Deep. Representing that album’s more direct approach, ‘Sirens’ delivers a chorus you can actually sing-along with amongst its suitably oceanic guitars.
It’s out on 10” vinyl with ‘A Father’s Son’ b-side ‘A Kingdom You Deserve’ and new track ‘Flood’, both of which would be worth the money alone, but you get ‘A Father’s Son’ as well. The digital version sees ‘Sirens’ remixed twice: 48K’s mix adds breaks and squelch, and Dave De Rose mix stresses drums and guitars to produce something simultaneously stripped down and enhanced:
I never thought ILT remixed would work, but both of these do. And the video adds a sinister and revengeful edge to the song that I’d never really spotted before. Take a look:
The vinyl is available to pre-order here. Go get.
