Guards is the side project of Willowz frontman, Richie James Follin. I felt compelled to share it with you as it has been blowing up my headphones and I expect a big year from this project in 2012. You can dig on the free 7 song EP that also features 2011 breakout band Cults on the track “Sail it Slow.” Buzz band blood lines give this project instant credibility as Follin is the brother of Cults lead singer Madelline, and occasionally moonlights on guitar for the band. Sometimes it just runs in the family. The first week in December, Guards released a 7″ entitled Do it Again. If you like The War on Drugs’ Slave Ambient from earlier this year, then you will like Guards.
