Some great singles have been trickling out of the upcoming Molly Nilsson album Twenty Twenty. “Days of Dust” might top them all, though. The song is insistent, built on a skipping-heart beat, but it’s also slightly laconic with more than a twist of wistfulness threading through her lyrics and a squint of sun soaking around the edges. Unlike some of the synthpop that’s popped up from the new album, this one is a pure guitar gem that’s a kindred spirit to recent albums by David West and Business of Dreams, capturing the kind of ‘80s heartache that’s always better in hindsight. She pairs the rose-tinted single with one of the simpler video setups so far, just some live shots, aimless and free as late summer. This one’s staying on repeat.
