Fascinations Grand Chorus – “When You’re Mine”


Playful synths and vintage pop guitars excitedly kick off “When You’re Mine”, the newest effort from Fascinations Grand Chorus, who previously impressed with their melodic and nostalgic pop sound on the excellent “Can’t Make Everyone Happy“. Here, the Brooklyn-based duo again draws comparisons to Camera Obscura, with yearning vocals and a tightly constructed pop melody intermingling, with the synth addition here being very welcome.

The track is the first to be released from the duo’s forthcoming third EP Anglesea, out on December 8th. The release is a five-song, mini-concept EP about The Wildwoods in New Jersey, a resort town with “design of classic mid-century motels and flashing neon vs cheap, cold modern condos” that brings to mind the futility of progress for the sake of progress, and the “exchange of character for insipidity.”
