As elegant as we’ve come to expect, Brooklyn duo Nassau today unveil “Champagne“, a simmering new track which is lifted from their brand new album, Heron, which is released next month via Fire Talk Records; their first proper full-length effort, following on from 2016’s Hoss EP.
“We set out to make an album that represented the changes happening in our minds, our hearts and in our lives,” the band say of Heron, and while such sentiments often lend themselves to something puzzled and downcast, Justin Wilcox and Jeffrey Silverstein flood their songs with colour, their eyes always looking up and out in to the world rather than the furrowed shadows that are often associated with times of flux.
Blessed with an almost whimsical sway, new track is indicative of such posturing, those glowing vocals sweetly wrapping themselves around the laid-back guitars in a merry dance of summery glowing movement. Smoothly flowing forwards through three-and-a-half beautifully detailed minutes, it’s another woozy slab of pop music that further enhances the pair’s flourishing penchant for crafting sumptuous guitar-pop. Check it out below right now.
