“this is a band that should no longer go ignored.” -Consequence of Sound
“Letting Up Despite Great Faults makes music that’s light as a feather and ephemeral as a
dream.” – Interview Magazine
Letting Up Despite Great Faults has released the first single “Visions” with Paste off their new album, Untogether, due out Oct. 9. The new track “sums up the sentiment of the the whole release,” says frontman Mike Lee. “Confident, with a sense of being lost,” Untogether is an album that radiates infectious melodies, heartbreaking sentiments, and danceable dreampop.
“Untogether marks a very specific time in my life where things began falling apart,” explains Lee. “Writing it was my first step to recover from bad wounds I was never comfortable discussing with anybody. One of my last steps was moving from my home in Los Angeles to start fresh in Austin, TX where our bassist Kent was already living.”
The new album sees the band continuing to refine and expand their sound, picking up where last year’s Paper Crush EP left off. The EP’s lead single ‘Teenage Tide’ was featured on the television show 90210, with Rolling Stone calling it “a blissful, shimmery track” and USA Today raving, “it captures the essence of teen dreams.” In 2009 the band released its self-titled full-length, which was met with unanimous critical acclaim.
