A Deli premiere: Backwords unveil single 'Gloria' from upcoming LP 'Nest'

A Deli premiere: Backwords unveil single 'Gloria' from upcoming LP 'Nest'

Backwords belong to that thin layer of Brooklyn bands that can be defined as "lifers" - which is a perfect word for a career in music, since there are always times when it feels like a life sentence to shit earnings. The band, active since 2008, has reportedly played over 300 shows in the US on as many as 55 different stages in NYC alone, and received a fair amount of coverage in this blog. We are premiering here their preview single "Gloria" (streaming below), from upcoming LP 'Nest,' which reveals a more mature sound, as if their friendly psych folk had exchanged some friendliness for power and some lightheartedness for depth. Recorded in the dead of summer, with minimal overdubs, in a large open warehouse space in Sunset Park, Brooklyn "Nest" is an album of growth, openness, and change, from a band that knows the Brooklyn indie scene like few others. 'Nest' will be out on September 16, the release party is scheduled for 09.20 at Baby's All Right.
