Got a tip off of a friend about this L.A . band and their LP from March is a total jangle gem that’s been sorely overlooked. While the whole LP is a soft-hearted strummer that could easily find a home on Paisley Shirt or Fruits & Flowers, the absolute earworm of the record is this pillowy puff of pop, “Flowers Die.” With a nice lacquer of nostalgia and cloudy-sky aesthetics, the song reclines onto its own indie-pop eiderdown. There’s something that strikes more of an American indie strain here, evoking a bit more of the fodder on that recently released Strum & Thrum comp than the usual UK and NZ touchstones that crop up. I’m definitely keeping an eye on these guys, but their debut is well worth a spin on the speakers for the jangle lovers in the crowd. Secret Music is out now, self-released from the band.
