New Music: International Waters – “Olympia”

Heaven’s seen some better days. International Waters’ latest single shares the title line of The Radio Dept.’s jam-of-the-year frontrunner “Heaven’s On Fire” — and a similarly warm place in my heart. Even moreso than their Rawkblog-premiered 7″ debut, this is the kind of sound the band showcased at SXSW: The Sea and Cake with edge, Felt re-imagined for 2010. The band’s debut EP, It Felt Like, is due in July with a full-length hopefully on the way by the end of the year, and they’ll be in L.A. on March 27 to open for brother band Voxtrot’s farewell tour at the Echoplex.
