Another Track from Hypoluxo

Brooklyn outfit Hypoluxo have already caught my fancy with their earlier single “Kentucky Smooth,” and I’m quite fascinated by their newest number. I thought I had this one pegged for the first minute, with a slightly dreamy guitar line hanging out there…not quite dream pop, not quite Mac Demarco. Then the vocals threw me off; there’s something in the hearty tones that give off a different vibe, and as such, the guitar takes on a different attitude…something darker, forbidden almost. I like how even in sections where they go verse chorus verse chorus, it never once takes on monotony. Look for the group’s new LP, Running on a Fence to drop September 21st via Broken Circles.

New Music from Hypoluxo

Today I’ve really been enjoying this track from Hypoluxo; it offers a blend of various genres that all seem right up my alley. From the get go, the percussion opens the track up with a bouncing rhythm, allowing room for the guitars to dance around. Seemingly, you’ve found a gem of a dream pop number, but the way the vocals are delivered indicates a style rooted in traditional indie rock, a la the National. All together, it straddles the genres perfectly, melding them together in an intoxicating fashion. The group are set to release Running on a Fence via Broken Circles come September 21st.

Digging This New Hypoluxo Track

Easily my favorite track from the last few days has to be this new one called “Sometimes” from Brooklyn based Hypoluxo. The song talks a lot about being lazy and wanting to stay inside, but the music offers a bit of a contrast to that with bright guitars and an almost dreamy feel. It reminds me quite a bit of bands like Beach Fossils or Real Estate, though the deep and heavy vocals offer some the band can call their own. Ya feel me.

Hypoluxo will release new EP Taste Buds via Broken Circles on August 4th.
