I’ll always take an opportunity to share a new Reds, Pinks & Purples song and today serves up another lovely slice of melancholy from the West Coast. From the upcoming Summer At Land’s End, Glenn shares “Pour The Light In.” Buoyed by a muffled pop of drums, the song’s heart is a tangle of soaring, nebulous guitars, weaving their ringing tones over one another while Donaldson maps the shapes of ache and anguish over the top. What I’ve always loved about RPP is the indulgence in the darker sides of indie pop. The songs embrace a permission to wallow in uncomfortable feelings — an aural stare into the distance, numbed by the sun and held hostage by sadness. Cheering up isn’t always the answer and for that Glenn’s got you covered. The new album arrives from the double hydra of indie pop Slumberland and Tough Love on February 4th.
