About a month ago we helped introduce you to Chicago based band Future Silence and their take on dreamy, quiet, pop music. Today we have another new single to share entitled “Ealing Broadway” coming off of the band’s upcoming debut EP. While this single is again focused on dream pop, the band pumps in some quirkier elements with electronics and a sparse horn piece. This band stands firmly in an ever rising Chicago scene.
The Chicago scene has been dropping some great tunes this week, earlier with Deeper and now this Future Silence track that comes with the announcement of their debut EP. There’s this sugary girl-group melody crafted by the vocals, though with just a hint of indifference to keep it cool. Musically, it offers this brooding version of dream pop…the rhythm section pushes the song forward, and the guitars seem solemnly muted, allowing the internal melody to sit in the vocals unit the chorus washes ashore. Really just in love with this song today, and if you’re feeling the same, look for their EP on September 13th courtesy of Half a Cow Records.
Having been damn near 5 years since we last heard from our Melbourne friend Wilding, I was quite excited to receive some new music from him a few days ago. His latest effort, “Speed King of the Commonwealth” is more of a loud, indie rock pop song worthy of dancing and head banging. It reminds me of early singles from Kaiser Chiefs with it’s chant inducing “la la las” and breezy guitar sound. This song is out now on all formats via Half Cow Records.
Only the beginning, Wilding is currently hard at work on his third album entitled The Death of Foley’s Mall coming sometime later this year.
