New Italian/Brit-Pop Discovery: Turnpike Glow - Inflatable Optimism EP

From Italy by way of the UK comes Turnpike Glow, whose 4-song EP Inflatable Optimism will be released in the US January 15.

Their sound is upbeat, catchy and guitar-centric and the record was produced by Dave Newfeld, whose credits also include Broken Social Scene and Los Campesinos.

Video for "1986":

And here's a video for "The Turn, The Pike and The Glow", another cut on the record - my favorite, mainly because of the guitar work:

That's 50% of their output, but there's more to come. This has been out in Europe since mid-2012, and they've been working with Newfeld on another release. You can stream the whole EP at Bandcamp:
