Laveda lays down hazy indie pop on new single, plays Rubulad 2.28

Brooklyn-based duo and recent Color Station signees Laveda craft shoegaze-influenced indie, with their most recent single “If Only (You Said No)” a lush encapsulation of their pedal-friendly, upbeat sound. Acoustic guitars quickly segues to a hazier, more ambient instruments in the track’s first act, quickly transitioning into 808s-driven synth pop as band members Jake Brooks and Ali Genevich sing in unison, their hushed vocals a somber foreground to the track’s swirling instrumental backing. A far more hushed single in comparison to the band’s previous efforts (“Better Now,” “Dream. Sleep”), “If Only (You Said No” demonstrates Laveda’s ability to creating energetic tunes with an experimental rock influence, perfect for fans of groups such as Slowdive or Japanese Breakfast; give them a listen below, and catch the duo on February 28th at Rubulad. Photo by Andrew Segreti

Ben Seretan revives his classic folk songwriting on "Power Zone," plays Union Pool 2.28

The music of Ben Seretan has always been characterized by a wistfully classic energy, and with the release of “Power Zone,” his new single precluding his first LP in four years, it feels like the return of an old friend. This tender energy comes in large part from Seretan’s vox, which waver and glide, hovering just above the track’s nostalgia-inducing slide guitars and roots-rock rhythmic progression. “You will always be hungry for something you can’t hold,” he croons, his voice evocative of Neil Young’s equally ghostlike tenor, fading into the background as sax lines and noodling riffs fill up the space. It’s these various easygoing components that make Seretan’s initial offering off Youth Pastoral indicative of his old soul approach to songwriting, a craft that will spring to life at his record release show on February 28th at Union Pool — until then, stream "Power Zone" below. —Connor Beckett McInerney
