The second UK single (Released Oct 3rd) from these leaders of an increasingly bouyant San Diego music scene, Take Your Medicine is taken from an album bound with anthemic choruses, psychedelic guitars and skewed pop hooks – a sound that clips stadium-sized riffs to anthemic lyricism. The single comes accompanied by an award-winning video by Radium/Reel FX and follows the band picking up two awards at this month’s San Diego Music Awards.
There’s a great deal to love about Future Selves, the epic debut album from San Diego’s Transfer. Bound with anthemic choruses, psychedelic guitars and skewed pop hooks, theirs is a sound that clips stadium-sized riffs to anthemic lyricism. It’s little wonder Q recently tipped them as the band most likely to emerge from America’s indie hinterlands in 2011.
High praise is something Transfer have gathered in bucket loads, however. Since first recording and self-releasing Future Selves in 2009, the four piece – Jason Cardenas (guitar, vocals) and Matthew Molarius (vocals, guitar), Shaun Cornell (bass) and Andy Ridley (drums) – soon picked up high profile support slots with White Lies, The Bravery and Killers front man, Brandon Flowers.
Along the way they amassed a growing, but near hysterical fanbase in Europe, where early arrivals for Flowers’ shows quickly tuned into Transfer’s sound. Facebook and Twitter later buzzed with good vibes; the band’s reputation went beyond the moshpit: in 2010, Cool Green Recordings signed them to their label and made plans to reissue Future Selves to a new audience in 2011.
San Diego band TRANSFER will release the first single from their debut album, Losing Composure, on July 18th. Recently signed to Cool Green Records following hotly-received UK, US and European shows with Brandon Flowers and White Lies, the group will return to the UK this summer for live dates in support of the single and ahead of the release of their phenomenal debut album Future Selves, this September.
Already making a big name for themselves Stateside, with recent excursions seeing the band impress at the influential Sunset Sessions and with a residency at Las Vegas’ Cosmopolitan Hotel, TRANSFER’s return to the UK this summer will take in high profile festival shows in Hyde Park (with The Killers), at Hop Farm and T In The Park, club shows, and their UK TV debut with a performance on Live From Abbey Road.
