Achings - "Need for Love"

Philadelphia's Achings started in one of the most organic ways possible. Singer/songwriter Rebecca Joy had just started maternity leave and overheard one of Justin Myer's guitar tracks. She immediately wrote the accompanying melody and lyrics on the spot, and Achings was formed.

The duo's latest single, "Need for Love," starts off as this gorgeous and lush alt-rock/pop song that is instantly going to appeal to fans of Phoebe Bridgers, Julia Jacklin, and Lucy Dacus. But halfway through, the song gains an unexpected intensity, particularly in the guitar. As intense as the guitar gets, it somehow adds to the beauty of the song. It's an indie rock explosion that increases the depth of the song. "Need for Love" is the kind of song you're going to want to immediately start again once it's over, and it only gets better with repeated listens.

You can watch the video for "Need for Love" below. All These Shapes, All These Days is due out July 14 on LandLand Colportage, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Achings, check out the band's Bandcamp and Instagram.
