10027 Check Out: Male Bonding   Tame the Sun

For our second taste from Male Bonding‘s upcoming sophomore album Endless Now, the follow-up to last year’s Nothing Hurts, the London noise-pop act have taken us back in time with the ’90s nostalgia that is album-opener “Tame the Sun”. The track, available below courtesy of Spin.com, is a blast of poppy, grunge-inspired rock sweetness with a hard noise-infused outer shell. The joy, singer-guitarist John Arthur Webb explained to SPIN, stems from a special place ’90s music holds in the 32 year old’s heart.

“When I was a kid I mopped floors at an all boys school, and I could buy one CD every two weeks. Nirvana, Blur, Sepultura…. That’s the soundtrack to me getting drunk for the first time, getting dumped for the first time, and generally experiencing all those weird feelings for the first time. The association of those times and those bands for me is priceless.”

In addition to “Tame the Sun”, check out an album trailer along with the band’s upcoming tour dates and album tracklist below. Endless Now is in stores August 30th via Sub Pop (pre-order your copy here).
