Gawn

Gawn jangle onwards in new video “No Light”

The overdriven, jangling nature of “No Light” immediately evokes nostalgia for a cramped performance at Trans Pecos or Babys All Right, yet the breakbeat energy Gawn bring to their performance keeps things forward focused. “Don’t sit around and find out, just get out and go,” sings bandleader and erstwhile touring musician Zach Koenig, an apt sentiment for a period plagued by constant inertia, though the track’s amp-straining guitar and condensed vox a la King Khan and the BBQ show make it difficult to sit still while listening. Sunny dispositions and slight discord make this single just the right amount of rough-hewn, and recommended listening for Friday nights indoors — watch the video below.
