Saw this new track from The Domestics pop up at GFP last week, and it’s a pretty stunning song. I was first drawn in by the careful chords that open the song, drifting in before being joined by a soft croon as the song progresses; I could have been happy with this first 1.5 minutes, but the band’s not done. They pick up their sound, first swelling with a broad wash of pop emphasis, then jump off into a bouncing explosiveness that reminds me, slightly, of Vampire Weekend. Their album Little Darkness will be released by Tender Loving Empire on September 1st.
