EXCLUSIVE NEW DOWNLOAD: The Sound Of Arrows - Winding Roads + 2 More
Like fellow Swedes The Tough Alliance, The Sound Of Arrows are two guys who play pop music for idealists. They list Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away” as a major influence and it shows—their songs smile with the same grand keyboard pads and crashing mid-tempo percussion, not only fearless of the big hook but desperately running towards it like a child clamoring for his mother. First single “Danger!” is a neon pop nugget, its two-note synth line carrying the chorus like a unicorn sprinting through a wood, singing with tongue firmly planted in cheek, “Tonight it’s danger baby, I feel so dangerous.” Straight sonic Zoloft for your ear canal. We’re stoked to give “Danger!” away for download this morning, along with two other exclusives from the Danger EP: “Winding Roads” (a slower and no less wistful piano ballad) and “Outro (Arrows In Heaven),” a dubby string track perfect for bookending albums. Grab all three below, buy it at their label's site, but most importantly just go with it and wrap yourself in the pastel summer sweaters of these tunes.
