Porches has today released a surprise new EP ‘Water’, and it’s being called “a new standalone insight into the music that formed [2015 LP] ‘Pool’.”
The EPs lead single ‘Black Dress’ has a new video, which you can watch below. The eight tracks include re-worked and demo versions of songs from ‘Pool’, and two new songs, ‘Black Dress’ and ‘Black Budweiser T-shirt’.
Aaron Maine had this to say about ‘Water’: “i spent the first year after releasing slow dance in the cosmos teaching myself how to record music. i ended up with a bunch of pretty realized demos for songs that ended up on “pool” during that process. it was a loose and explorative time for me. i wanted to release a select few of these “demos” because i always find the excitement captured by recording a song when you first write it to be almost impossible to recreate later down the line. i chose to rerecord all of the songs that were to be on pool because i felt like by the time i had a batch of songs that i felt would make an album, i had grown as a producer and wanted to give them another pass. either way it’s fun to listen back to these earlier versions of the songs and remember how they first existed.”
