Following quickly on their album from last year, Melbourne’s Floodlights return with a nice double-punch of a single. The b-side “Overflowing Cup” finds the band in introspective terrain, gazing over their lives with an ennui that seems pretty thick given their youth. Lead by a lonesome call of harmonica and Louis Parsons’ heart-wrung vocals, the song pushes their pop into similar territory as fellow Aussies RVG, exploring past the Antipodean jangles of their past and finding as much inspiration from Echo and the Bunnymen as Springsteen. The song acts as a nice hook into their burnished indie-pop for those that missed out on the charms of From A View, or a companion piece for those who’ve already run it into dust on the speakers. The new single lands June 18th from Tiny Town Records.
