Returning once again via Geelong, Australia; Vintage Crop offer up their new single, “Springtime”. With 2022’s “Kibitzer” album still looming large in the rear-view mirror, Crop now speed ahead once more with this two-track seasonal treat. 

“Springtime” exhibits the band’s growing strength in harmonic arrangement, whilst staying true to their taut roots - allowing the lyrics to shimmer. Following the arc of a relationship on the rocks and both people coming to terms with their situation, the song is a rare moment of vulnerability for the band that demonstrates their growth. The flip side sees “Mercenary” deliver the sort of post-punk punch that fans have come to expect from the band. Brutish, brash & refusing to sit still; all the makings of a classic Vintage Crop number. Paired with lyrics exploring the online music scene, the song pokes fun at the “Internet Sound” that now dominates the underground.

"Springtime" is a firm foot forward for Vintage Crop, a band that consistently tinkers with their sound to impressive effect. 
The new single is available on 7” through Upset the Rhythm (UK) & Anti Fade Records (AU) from September 8th. - Anti Fade
