Following “The Romance in Disappearing“–the lead single from their forthcoming EP, Young Professional–UTG is thrilled to once again team up with New York’s Side Saddle to premiere the second single from the new effort, set to release on July 20 via Cedar Lodge Records.

“Legs For Days” is a beautiful folk-rock cut that builds in multiple parts over the course of four and a half minutes–each a fuller, more engrossing arrangement of textures and instrumentation than the last.

In regards to the impetus for the song’s creation, frontman Ian McGuinness tells us, “‘Legs for Days’ was a way for me to cope through a hard break-up. Lyrically, it takes you through the painful, hazy steps of separation and ends with a moment of clarity and a glimpse of hope. Sonically, the song was our first foray into a larger wall of sound, incorporating a string quartet, multiple trumpets and two drummers.”

In other awesome and relevant news–for those able to attend the band’s EP release show on July 24–New York’s Singlecut Beersmiths have brewed a special edition batch of “Legs For Days” Imperial IPA to aid in the celebration. The beer is described as having a “citrus explosion bite you only get from American hops, a malty backbone and a generous amount of complex sugars and specialty malts giving this bold IIPA the drinkability of a much smaller beer.” It contains Apollo, Mosaic and Citra hops with a 9% ABV, so take ’em easy.

More information about the record release show can be found here.
