RIYL: Interpol, White Lies, Cold Cave, Klaxons
When the weather gets colder, I always go running to that shimmering darkwave stuff. Â I’m talking about the Interpols, Cold Caves and Black Marbles of our galaxy and all of their moody post-punk pop soaked in reverb. Â That stuff hits my ears like a spoonful of hot Campbell’s soup after a frosty February morning of shoveling the snow off the driveway. Â And you’re like “Dave, you live in Austin, what the hell are you talking about?” Â Okay, valid point, you vicious bastards.
Soviet Soviet are one of those go-to groups for those dismal overcast days, though. Â They’ve got the fuzzy bass tones to clear your ear canals, the Stephen Morris drum cadences, the icy, cavernous vocal treatments and all the delicious pop hooks to fill your addictions. Â Endless is the group’s third album, their second on the post punk auteur label Felte Sounds.
As of this write-up, there are 61 copies remaining on their Bandcamp page. Â Check out their first two singles from Endless below.
