First of all big thanks to Pitchfork for pointing us in the direction of It Looks Sad. They are a new(ish) band out of Charlotte, North Carolina who are preparing for the release of their debut 7” later in the summer.
The first (and only) track we’ve listened by from them so far is ‘Radical’ and it’s a dark affair with lyrics like “I ask why… Do we die?” Though lyrics may be dark, the track is actually a melodious-gem with attractive easy-on-the-ear chord changes which gradually dissipate has the track builds in intensity towards its mouth-frothing finale.
We can’t wait to hear more It Looks Sad. For more info on them check out their Facebook page.
‘Radical’ is taken from the upcoming It Looks Sad. Debut “Self-Titled” 7″ due out in Summer 2014 on Tiny Engines.
