No lie, I got turned onto this new Telepods joint by a friendly door guy just wishing to instill good tunes on me. Lucky for me, and you, the song’s got a good future ahead of it. Personally, I think the sound of the guitar that opens up the track is perfectly fitting, making way for the bass to work its way into the track. There’s a bit of a dark haunt to the vocal feeling, which can be totally entrancing, depending upon your musical tastes. Every time I listen, I think the band’s got a hang on post-punk, yet thrown in with a great deal more of pop-leaning tendency. See for yourself, and keep your eyes peeled for more as word on the streets is a new album is on its way.
There’s always a brief lull right before the storm, except this year, there isn’t. There’s tons of shows with Austin band’s all over town, and tonight I encourage you to head to Cheer Up Charlies to catch the Wildfires EP release. The band offers you pop music via a kaleidoscope of dreaminess and shoegaze elements. I’m really excited to hear the band’s EP in full, but for now we’ll let you stream this brand new song they’ve got for you. Plus, there’s other local greats on the bill like The Sour Notes, The Zoltars (who just released their 3rd album recently) and Telepods. The weather’s been great, so why not enjoy your evening with great tunes.
