Rough Kids: Lights Out 7"

Episode Sounds


Brand new single from the mighty Rough Kids! Limited to only 300 copies so don't sleep!

Our take: Single release on the great Japanese Episode Sounds label (slightly) preceding the release of Rough Kids' along-awaited sophomore LP on Sorry State. While, on the whole, Rough Kids' 2nd LP is a harder and faster affair than their debut, both the songs on this LP are a little more mid-paced. "Lights Out" features a relatively rare lead vocal from guitarist Tsubasa, but he proves himself just as capable as Ethan is of delivering a big hook. Speaking of Ethan, his track "The Shame, It Grows" is exclusive to the b-side of this single, and it's pretty much right in the pocket of Rough Kids' distinctive, tightly-wound style. Essential for the unreleased track, but that killer layout will look just fine sitting on your record shelf too.
