Stream: Solids, “Haze Away”

Solids

FADER PREMIERE

Solids is the Montreal-based duo of guitarist/vocalist Xavier Germain-Poitras and drummer Louis Guillemette. Like their earlier single, “Traces,” “Haze Away” takes takes an easy, adrenaline-driven melody and passes it through a tunnel of gristle and feedback. It’s got a charming scrappiness that will feel inexplicably familiar to fans of ’90s college radio rock, even in the subtly not-of-this-time way that Germain-Poitras bears down on the word week in the chorus. Blame Confusion, the band’s debut album, is out February 18th via Fat Possum. Tourdates below.
