Few and Far Between / Cruise Italy Split WHOA-0014

Sometimes two things that are amazing on their own come together through some twist of fate, and a legendary team is formed.

Continuing the tradition of great collaborations, veteran Detroit (and Brooklyn) indie rockers Few and Far Between join Cruise Italy on a new 7" split from Whoa! Records.

The record is a study in contrast. While Cruise Italy takes a carefully wrought, melodic approach on their track, Young Villains, Few and Far Between take a more aggressive tack.

On one side, Few and Far Between's track Left for Dead is a hawkish missive about trying to find the inspiration to break out of the routine of our workaday lives. Its anthemic choruses are made truly powerful with help from Jay Navarro (Suicide Machines/Break Anchor/Hellmouth)

On the other side, Cruise Italy charts a more measured and poetic approach with their contribution to the record. The warm and somber tone of Young Villains weaves a tale of someone taking a leap and starting a new life.

The contrasting tones of each track make for a perfect combination. This is a record you're not going to want to miss out on.

Few and Far Between and Cruise Italy along with Old Mission, will play a release show Nov. 21 at Small's in Hamtramck. Doors are at 8 p.m., tickets are $7, 18 and up are welcome.
