Over the last couple days, I’ve been sifting through various video edits of this band’s live set from eMusic’s SXSW Day Party (to be posted soon!). As I said in my SXSW recap, bands like the Pains aren’t usually my style. But these guys put on a great show, and after seeing them live and watching a number of their videos, they’ve now sucked me in. This was one of my favs from the show last week:
It’s called “Belong” and it’ll be on their forthcoming album of the same name (due out on March 29th).
I finally had a chance to pull together a full re-cap of my trip down to SXSW last week.

I just can’t get enough of this entire EP, but this is probably my favorite track:
A simple, catchy bassline with some great melodic textures and a mellow dual-vocal delivery. It’s kind of like easy listening without being “Easy Listening,” and I mean that in the best way possible.
Okay, one tune isn’t enough. I also love this one: “Victim of Trap”
