Brooklyn duo Lightouts just released their first single “See Clear,” and publications like Prefix have already heralded it as a return to good old fashioned guitar rock. For their B-side, the band chose to cover another B-side: The Stone Roses’ “Here It Comes.” Originally the flip to 1987 single “Sally Cinnamon,” “Here It Comes” is an undiscovered gem of Madchester swagger.

In Lightouts’ hands, feedback does little to hide the poppy melody. “I’d rather be no one than someone with no one,” Greg Nelson steadily intones as bursts of chiming guitar explode around him. It’s a refreshing dose of earnestness accompanied by fist-in-the-air rocking. Download it below.
