There is an ambient fuzz and, antithetically, a gorgeous delicacy to the new single ‘Irrational’ by Sydney band Erthlings. This is a dreamy and heavenly track that is imbued with an achingly melancholic shimmer.
The single has an eighties day-glo brilliance with an instrumentation that reflects some kind of weird mix between M83 and Dinosaur Jnr. I can’t help think of Melbourne’s Underground Lovers with that unique mix of acoustic and electronic – dance and indie vibes. This is a gorgeous track. Dream Pop with a little bite, a little grit.
The video, with the band in the midst of roller skating rink is evocative and hypnotic:
This is a sublime release from a very exciting band. You can download or stream ‘Irrational’ from here.
