If you're a power pop fan and haven't heard The Rememberables yet, well, you have a new band to get excited about. The Washington, DC-based quartet got the whole hook-happy thing down, and then some, but there's a harder edge to what they're doing.
Marrying the classic '70s spirit of style-setters as Big Star with the '90s wave of groups like Teenage Fanclub and Posies, along with a potent helping of sludge in their guitar tones, listening to The Rememberables is a catchy and loud experience. No Echo readers should also know that the lineup features Chris Moore on drums, a musician you might recognize from his work in such bands as Coke Bust, Repulsion, and Magrudergrind.
After issuing their self-titled debut LP back in 2017, The Rememberables have hooked up with Head2Wall Records (US) and Adagio830 (Europe) for the release of Breathe, their sophomore full-length.
Produced by Kurt Ballou (Chelsea Wolfe, Torche) at his GodCity Studio in Salem, MA, the album won't be out til October, but No Echo got the jump on the music video for the track "Bummer" which is everything but:
"This was one of the first songs we wrote for the record, which dealt with the trauma of losing someone, and it sort of set the tone for the entire album," The Rememberables guitarist/vocalist Binh Ngo told No Echo via email.
"We wanted the video to communicate that feeling and turned toward our friend Zach Van Hoozer (Honeyland Films) whose music video work brought this cool cinematic Wong Kar-wai vibe."
