The Laughing Chimes - "Tomorrow's 87" and "The Apologist Effigy"

Hailing from Athens, OH, The Laughing Chimes are going to make you long for the alternative of the 80's, back before it was known as "college rock." Their latest single, "Tomorrow's 87," has that fuzzy sound reminiscent of early shoegaze and what is now known as dream pop. It sounds like that time period when New Wave was starting to morph into what became alternative rock. And then, just to fully hit your nostalgia button, the B-side, "The Apologist Effigy," sounds like a mixture of classic alternative from Athens, GA and Olympia, WA mixed together. As vintage as these two new songs from The Laughing Chimes can sound, they are more modern versions of these styles and not just a pure throwback.

You can listen to "Tomorrow's 87" and "The Apologist Effigy" below. The single is available now via Slumberland Records. For more on The Laughing Chimes, check out the band on Instagram and Twitter.
