It feels like the Infinites are one of the hottest commodities in town right now, and by that, I mean, they’re one of the absolute bands bouncing about. But, there are those that live outside the confines of our fair city, and you should definitely put the band on your “must listen” to list. Press play on this new single from their forthcoming LP and you’ll get intoxicated by the guitar tones; they have that natural bounce we adore from the surf-rock genre, though its presentation with the vocals definitely leaves it in more dreampop territory. I think it also shows the expert craftsmanship of the group, as the song seemingly comes to an abrupt end; why go forth when you’ve said all there is to say in a song? The band’s self-titled LP comes out via First Human Records this Friday…with an In-Store performance over at Waterloo if you’re here in town!
Having already fallen in love with “Nina Segovia,” it only seems fitting we follow up our Infinites coverage with another stunning pop number from the ATX band. I was hooked by the opening sixteen seconds, starting with a wonky pop guitar that’s met by a fuzzy counterpoint around the 14 second mark…and this is just the start of the band’s pop sensibility. Singer Jared Leibowich drapes his vocals atop those feuding pop guitar lines, building this delicious layer of pop frosting that has your toes tapping and hips swinging. Speaking of Jared, he’s also responsible for the video, using archival footage to weave into the storyline of one Scott McMurray. Just listen through to the 2:18 mark, please. If that guitar solo doesn’t make your day INFINITEly better, then I’ll buy you coffee next time we meet. If you love this, and you should, go grab the self-titled record from First Human Records; it’s out April 26th.
