LA-based Letting Up Despite Great Faults have released a brand new single, “Sophia in Gold” for free mp3 download at the Buzz Bands premiere or at SoundCloud (available for posting). The single follows the release of their summery, nostalgia-inducing track “Teenage Tide” – both taken from their forthcoming EP Paper Crush, out on Old Flame Records on August 2. The band will be performing select dates on the west coast in support of the release, with a national tour to follow shortly.

Letting Up Despite Great Faults is the electro-based sonic diary of founding member, Mike Lee. The band’s first release was the Movement EP, which included songs that were featured on NPR and the television drama, One Tree Hill. In 2009, they released their self-titled full length, which met with unanimous critical acclaim, including rave reviews from Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Exclaim! and countless indie music blogs. Consisting of Kent Zambrana, Chris Gregory, Matt Salas, Caitlin Dwyer, and Lee himself, the live band seamlessly integrates electronic and acoustic drums on stage. Be sure to check them out in a city near you.
