Rising Portland duo Wampire are poised to release their debut full-length Curiosity on May 14. Featured on the LP is the track “Trains,” which has landed itself online as a free download.

“‘Trains’ was written during a time when I was young and overly idealistic about love,” explains bandmember Eric Phipps in an interview with Rolling Stone. “A lady was driving me wild with her strange affection and I was naively waiting for it to ‘mean something’ or whatever. When she finally skipped town, I was sitting on a train that was delayed for some reason or another and started humming the melody that later became ‘Trains.’ By the time I got home I had the lyrics and rough skeletal structure of the song. ‘Girls are like trains – you’re always waiting for a chance to be let on just so you can hop off at the next stop.’”
