We first saw GUARDS at CMJ 2010, and since then they’ve released so many instant indie classic singles that we can scarcely believe they’re just now gearing up to release their first album, In Guards We Trust. “Coming True” is the record’s second single, and it’s fantastic, anthemic, and hyper-catchy, endlessly hooky, endlessly relistenable. You’ll be singing that soaring chorus – and whistling its accompanying string lines and guitar solos – for at least the rest of the year. The record is out February 5; you’ll have no problem putting “Coming True” on repeat in the meantime. Check the band out on tour this December, too.
