If you can manage a spare second away from Daft Punk today, I highly recommend giving IS TROPICAL‘s latest release I’m Leaving and especially the airy track “Sun Sun“.
The track is a frolicy, breezy tune that will delight the ears of fans of lighthearted indie-rock. Lead singer Simon Milner‘s raspy, sage vocals are reminiscent of Spoon lead singer Britt Daniel’s. In fact, this whole song sounds like it’s from the same recipe book of Spoon’s classic “The Underdog”. “Sun Sun” has a bit more of a hippy-vibe to it. At a little past halftime, the track bursts out into an ode to the sun, sung by a chorus of flower children.
This jam is the least indie-tronic on an album that is already less electronically influenced than its predecessor Native To. I am always a huge proponent of bands expanding their sound outside of their comfort zone and “Sun Sun” is a perfect example of why.
The IS TROPICAL trio is completed with Gary Barber, and Dominica Apa all out of London. You can go grab their new album I’m leaving (courtesy of French label Kitsune Records) over at their website. Check out “Sun Sun” below and stream the whole album below that.
