This New York band’s post-punk / new wave song is a great contrast in light and dark, and should appeal to a wide spectrum of music fans. Starting with a jangly, memorable, and very chipper reverb’d guitar riff, the mood turns darker when the deep, slightly melancholic vocals begin, with a chorus that sounds like
Look inside this room, of decay
No one to reply, look away
Ambitions, float on by
Ambitions, float away
You should especially check this out if you enjoy the ’80s post-punk sound of bands like Lowlife, the Chameleons, and the Cure.
