single radiates dreamy warmth with an ’80s New Wave undercurrent. Imagine if Beach House and Hæerts teamed up with M83, and you’ll have an idea of the lush sonic adventure that awaits you with DWNTWN.
“Bloodshot Eyes” unfolds gracefully with a dreamy, 10-second intro before the reverb-heavy guitars usher in Leffler’s crystalline vocals. This is a song that should be played at max volume and kept on repeat for an instant euphoric rush. It’s from the band’s upcoming Racing Time debut LP that’s due from Jullian Records on July 21st. You can pre-order it from iTunes.
DWNTWN are Jamie Leffler (lead vocals), Robert Cepeda (guitar/vocals), and Daniel Vanchieri (drums).
