The kind of lone dancer you might expect to find in the corner of a dark nightclub is made innocent (maybe even enviable?) when placed in sun patches across various graffitied structures that are ripe for urban exploration in the video for “…Even Today” by Song Sparrow Research.
The nourishing sound of the Seattle, Washington, five-piece (Hamilton Boyce, David Balatero, Ryan Batie, Evan Woodle, Kendall Becker) adds to the wholesomeness, laying fluttering romantic beats under reverberating baritone vocals.
Reminiscent of Grizzly Bear’s Yellow House with a hint of The Smiths, Song Sparrow Research knits together various musical textures, from ‘80s synth to a warm, half-submerged bass line in the track off their forthcoming LP Sympathetic Buzz (Summer 2015).
