I don’t bear in mind why I adopted Chicago audio engineer Seth Engel’s band Choices on Bandcamp, however I’m glad I did as a result of the lead single from their new album is nice. The music, “Toast,” leads off the forthcoming Swimming Feeling on a catchy but pleasingly disjointed observe. There are bits of Vehicles-style power-pop and emo within the combine, but additionally the extra artsy, sophistipop-leaning aspect of latest wave and perhaps math-rock too? (Take a look at these off-kilter guitar and drum rhythms within the verses.) Engel sings every little thing in an understated tenor that matches with the opening lyrics: “Evening, caught in a vibe/ Loping via time.” It’s a cool music, and with a runtime below two minutes, it may be performed a number of occasions with out getting outdated. Try this beneath.
