Synth-Laden Pop from Pillar Point

pillarpointI was a pretty big fan of Throw Me the Statue, so I’m really happy to hear that Scott Reitherman has a new project to work on: Pillar Point.  The act previewed a track the other day, and I figured I’d jump on the fanatic bandwagon.  The tune starts off with this stuttering synth beat, pushing your arms and feet in a swinging motion, but as you move forward, a softer side of the track begins to reveal itself; it kicks in at the 1.23 minute mark, and it’s my favorite moment of the song. If you dig it, you can grab the band’s eponymous LP from Polyvinyl Records on February 25th.
