Last spring the pair released Carousel, a 7" that yielded another pick for my Spring 2013 New Music Playlist, "Click." Now, they're preparing to drop a full album in January via Polyvinyl Records, with the title track "Forever" ready to preview. The song begins with action packed distortion worthy of a film score, before vocal and percussive layers make way for a melodic chorus through the creative clutter. Thoughtful lyrics bring an introspective vibe that allows for a bit of ironic shoe gazing, as Prudhomme sings "Thinking about myself too much I can see that/I don't know what to be."
