New wave. New love. It works, right? New York-based rockers the Spring Standard bring a touch of the Cars’ spastic guitar crunch to “Here We Go,” a soaring tune about those first hopeful flushes of romance. The song appears on the trio’s upcoming double-EP set, yellow//gold (out May 1 on Parachute Shooter Records), which brings together two complementary but discrete collections of music from the former Pennsylvania-Delaware folkies. “Could this be love?” one of the band’s three songwriters asks on the ebullient chorus. Consider this first sight.
