The A-side of the new 7-inch from Fresh & Onlys’ guitar player Wymond Miles opens with a beautiful anthemic post-punk song, “Passion Plays.” Miles says his desire was to make, “a motoric blast of rock that a trio could easily play. Lyrically it’s an open book of feverish confusion with love affairs, the ties that bind, and the blades that cut us free.” The B-side is a cover of a legendary Flying Nun band, The Terminals. Shayde Sartin (also of Fresh & Onlys) plays bass and Kelley Stoltz plays drums on the track. Miles’ previous full length was critically acclaimed and showcased a side of the artist with very different output than Fresh & Onlys, one who was exploring his 70’s glam roots and early 80’s post punk influences. As hooky as ever though, Wymond’s musicianship shines through and extends here to include bass and theremin duties.
