Columbus, OH’s Times New Viking are back with a new EP due out on Siltbreeze on October 16. Given their origins in a key swing state, it’s possible these six packed parcels of lo-fi noise pop, cleverly titled Over & Over, could mean the difference between winning and losing out on the opportunity to own a new EP. Taking a break from releasing stuff on Merge (most recently 2011’s Dancer Equired), TNV have instead opted for a strategy that returns them to their roots, reuniting the band with Siltbreeze for the first time since 2007’s Present the Paisley Reich.
Will this change in focus help secure another victory for the group? We’ll have to wait until October 16 when the results are in, but early purchasing is underway now for 12-inch vinyl, and early polling suggests these tracks are indeed jangly.
Stay tuned to TMT News for all the latest updates as the campaign continues.
