Brace yourselves, summer is coming. And with it, the tropical indie bliss of Labradoor’s latest release ‘Silence’.
The sunny reflection of Tame Impala, the peppy spark of Two Door Cinema Club, and the psychedelic nostalgia of The War On Drugs can all be felt throughout this track. The direct, angular guitars work fantastically atop the woozy synths and urgent backbeat, and if you think you’ll be able to avoid that longing feeling for the beach and an ice-cold mojito, you’re wrong.
Everything about ‘Silence’ radiates chill. There’s something deeply likeable about the song, it takes you on a pleasant cruise and pays for all your drinks. And yet it’s still pacey and exciting; it gallops along nicely whilst still maintaining that same laid back vibe. This is mainly due to the hushed delivery of the vocal, and although the words get a little lost, there’s a wonderful chorus melody which soars and descends with delightful grace.
If there were ever to exist an absolute, archetypal sound for the upcoming UK festival season, it would be this. Go and listen to this band with haste.
