Trans- Records have announced the release of a split 7″ for Record Store Day on April 20th featuring tracks from Sombear and Chris Walla, guitarist/producer for Death Cab For Cutie. The limited 1000 pressing 7″ features Sombear’s debut single “Incredibly Still” and Walla’s “Never Give Up,” and will be released on Walla’s own label Trans- Records. Both Walla and Sombear have also contributed tracks to Tegan and Sara’s Closer (Remixes) 12″ vinyl, giving their unique takes on the Canadian duo’s hit single.
Stream the Walla + Sombear 7″ via the Stereogum.com premier.
Minneapolis based producer/songwriter Sombear has signed to Walla’s Trans- Records for the release of his debut album Love You In The Dark, out later this summer. While finding his way through middle and high school in the late 90s and early 00s Sombear developed a deep affinity for dance pop and house music. On Love You In The Dark he re-lives that youthful obsession once kept a hidden guilty pleasure while navigating the confines of the testosterone and alternative rock radio soaked suburban public school hallways.
