It’s hard to go wrong with that bass line progression (you know, that “Stand By Me” type shit). Don’t get it fucked up though, this song is nothing like “Stand By Me”. In terms of structure and melody, it’s timeless, but the young Brooklyn band keeps things 2010 with a current sensibility that you’d expect from a bunch of Brooklyn dudes that look like the guys you see above. It’s a little whiny, but I am really digging this track off their self-titled debut. It’s heavy, sparse, down tempo, filled with emotion, and wonderful. Thanks to Different Kitchen.
