New single: Zenxith || The Girl Who Waved At Trains

Limited single by prolific underground pop sensation from Newcastle

Admission: we’ve been neglecting the Newcastle (UK) songwriting phenomenon that is Zenxith, a.k.a. Daniel McGee. Over the past two years, McGee, still in his early twenties, has flooding the underground pop scene with gem after gem. Yet we’ve only covered his music indirectly, through compilations and split EPs. Our biggest oversight? Failing to write about his Cooling Tower album.

Now, one of that album’s prize songs is available on a 7″ single, released in a very limited run of 50 copies through McGee’s own Salt Mine Records. The song? It’s the delightfully jangly and delicate ’80s throwback pop hit The Girl Who Waved At Trains. The B-side, I’m So Into You, is a single exclusive – a hushed, swaying track that further proves we shouldn’t underestimate Zenxith’s lo-fi pop prowess.

RIYL: Television Personalities, The Field Mice, Sarah Records.
