Bag of Brains – “Time Will Break Your Heart”
Bag of Brains are a husband-wife duo based in Detroit, crafting a consuming vein of lo-fi folk with psych-friendly sentiments. Newly released track “Time Will Break Your Heart” features a dual vocal approach, wearily navigating through prancing keys and acoustical strums. The vocal lead’s alternation between a high-pitched jerkiness and more solemn, low-pitched segment provides some enjoyable melodic variation. The track’s second half features more up-front vocal shifts and leads, remaining entrenched in the established magical-like soundscape. I’m reminded of parts Magnetic Fields, parts Wolf Parade, and parts Xiu Xiu.
“Time Will Break Your Heart” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2019’ Spotify playlist.
