Having become a staple on Knox Road and one of our good friends from our few years of blogging, electronic pop masterminds Letting Up Despite Great Faults will continue to get play here as long they keep making music we love.
They recently released a new track off their forthcoming EP, Paper Crush, for free download. The song, called “Teenage Tide,” incorporates everything we’ve come to expect from previous Letting Up material with a slightly more produced and coherent sound. Stirring guitars deliver a steady, raspy rhythm throughout, and, as usual, Mike Lee’s gentle voice shines. Caitlin Dwyer provides some timely harmonies as well. Which basically means “Teenage Tide” has all the elements of pop songs I love.
Paper Crush will be out August 2 via Old Flame Records.
