Doubting Thomas Cruise Control: Soft focus (Single, Fleeting Youth Records, 2015)

A heartbreaking song at it’s core, “Soft Focus” is one piece of the bigger puzzle that is Remember Me John Lydon Forever. The album is quirky yet heartfelt, snarling yet sincere, it’s an introspective record that carries themes of growing up, responsibility that comes with age, and life expectations, the thoughts of an artist watching those around them enter “adulthood” and as Cardos puts it, the pursuit to “evolve from being defined by what you’re not and what you don’t ascribe to, and using that to figure out what you do ascribe to.” (Press)

Doubting Thomas Cruise Control: Lillehammer (Fleeting Youth, Single, 2015)

“Doubting Thomas Cruise Control are excited to announce their sophomore full length album, Remember Me John Lydon Forever, due out August 14th via Fleeting Youth Records (Mumblr, Loose Tooth, ScotDrakula) and the band’s own Duckbill Records. The Brooklyn based quartet, comprised of Bobby Cardos (guitar/vocals), Chris Sprindis (bass), Sean Kelly (guitar), and Joe McCarthy (drums/keys) have debuted the album’s first single, “Lillehammer” via Stereogum, an inescapably catchy indie rock burner with a twisted melodic charm driven by the circular vocal pattern and knotted guitar harmonies. The song unfolds with a monstrous guitar solo that would make the likes of Malkmus and Martsch proud before jerking right back into the earworm hook. “Lillehammer” is only the first taste of the band’s new record, but the tone for the diverse album is immediately set.Remember Me John Lydon Forever is quirky yet heartfelt, snarling yet sincere, it’s an introspective album that carries themes of age and life expectations, the thoughts of an artist watching those around them enter “adulthood” and as Cardos puts it, the persuit to “evolve from being defined by what you’re not and what you don’t ascribe to, and using that to figure out what you do ascribe to.”
