Not too long ago we brought you the first single from El Lago; today we’ve got another one for you from the band’s debut, Colors. If you’re looking to pigeonhole the band, well, good luck. This round they’re taking some of the pop sensibility and shifting it into a darkened post-rock vibe, albeit a slightly dreamy one. The layering of guitars, particularly that in the distant background, creates an ominous touch that permeates the tune. It’s a slow-charmer, gradually unfolding through your speakers in the most captivating of ways. Colors drops on November 4th via Miss Champagne Records.
Tuesdays seem to get stuck between the doldrums of Mondays and the excitement of hump-day specials…they seem lost in a dreamy purgatory of the work week. Enter El Lago with their brand single, draping dream pop flourishes across the lyrical delivery of Lauren Eddy. At times, like Tuesday, she’s simply there, delivering spoken word. Then, she wraps her voice around the delectable melody and carries it into the next moment. Personally, I love the almost matter-of-fact manner the group takes to fleshing out the latter half of this tune; I completely got lost upon my first few listens. This Galveston act will be releasing their album Colors on November 4th via Miss Champagne Records, but for now, let them carry you through your Tuesday.
