Killer Track From CYMBALS

In the usual melange of trolling for tracks, it’s rare that you click play on a new song and know instantly that you’ve found a real gem. “Decay,”from CYMBALS, is the perfect blend of shoe gaze and dance pop– think Slowdive meets The Radio Dept with a splash of The XX thrown in there. You get the building percussion throughout, but also some string work threaded in, as well as the omnipresent effervescent synths that spiral and transform kaleidoscopically. Plus you get some twangy and distant guitar to put the icing on the cake. Simply put, this track is at once beautiful and danceable and makes me beyond excited to hear what CYMBALS have in store for us on their upcoming record, Light In Your Mind, which will be out August 25th via Tough Love Records. Pre-order it here.
