LESANDS are from a place called San Diego in California. So already you’re thinking, ‘here’s another band that sing about summer and girls and surfing’. Well, you’re not too far from the truth, though I can see no evidence that they sing about those things too much, they certainly emanate a summery vibe. Unlike many west coast lo-fi bands though, these guys are essentially synth based, and create dreamy sounds within the collection of pop songs I’ve heard from their debut EP.

The highlight of Sweet Skin, said EP, is the opener ‘Pretenders’, which sounds a bit like something Yeasayer could have come up with for Odd Blood, a non-stop, blissy pop jam. The EP is available to download for free at their bandcamp, whilst ‘Pretenders’ will be another track featuring on our next mixtape.
