Codeine Realize

Codeine Realize

Out of print

Release Date July 1, 1992

Catalog No SP155

While the back cover for this single promises a “full-length release, autumn ‘92,” the band’s next release would actually be the Barely Real EP (though it did come out that November). The a-side to their Singles Club 7-inch would later serve as the opener for Barely Real, utilizing the slow tempo to highlight the emotive resolve between the spacious chords. The single’s artwork would later be repurposed as the cover for When I See The Sun, a meticulously curated boxset by Numero Group detailing the band’s entire catalog – including rarities and b-sides like “Broken-Hearted Wine.”
