After months of anticipation, Chicago’s Randy Records has released the debut single from Slushy, “Candy” b/w “Pocket”.

You can order the single directly from Randy Records. The first 50 orders through the Randy site come with white/orange/pink splattered vinyl.

There’s also a super-duper limited edition version that features artwork from GOONS.

These are hand-numbered out of 50. They can be ordered on the Slushy bandcamp page.

“Candy” is one of the first songs that Slushy ever played. It’s a song about tossing and turning when your mind won’t slow down. The version on the single is different from the version we performed on Chic-a-Go-Go, but man is it good, too. Nathan got a rawer sound that’s more true to our live set-up.

“Pocket” is the B-side but it’s the secret hit. It’s a song about having adorable friends. It was only half-written when we went to record, so we faked our way through it, and it turned out great. That solo was done live and it’s not too shabby.

The single was recorded by Nathan Johnson in Randy’s Garage and mixed by Joe Montanaro. Photos by Brian Shanely, Slushy logo by Adam Pezen, Goons by Goons, layout by Slushy.
