Old Flame Records is pleased to announce the debut release from Mathieu Santos. Limited to a pressing of 300 green vinyl 7-inch records, I Can Hear The Trains Coming will be available July 26, 2011. To celebrate the release, Old Flame Records is making the title track A-side available for free download. Flip the wax and the B-side features “Northern Mentality” (MIDI Demo) which will exclusively be available on the limited edition pressing.
A pre-order for the 7-inch is currently running over at Old Flame Records.
A founding member (and the extraordinarily agile bassist) of chamber pop heavy-hitters Ra Ra Riot, Mathieu Santos has surprised himself by his solo effort. “I Can Hear the Trains Coming” is the debut single off of the upcoming full-length on Barsuk Records later this year.
An irresistibly catchy toe tapper with a warm organ holding together airy harmonies and high flying lyrics, “I Can Hear the Trains Coming” is like the first day of summer after the longest winter of your life. Exposing Santos’ technical prowess and his innate sense of what it takes to make a song you can’t get out of your head.
