Spun Out – “Such Are the Lonely”

A track from Chicago-based band Spun Out, “Such Are the Lonely” weaves trickling synths, playful bass, and spirited vocals for an enthusiastic melodic success. Twinkling synths gear into a bustling bass pulse, reminiscent fondly of Future Islands. Vibrant vocals lead to a bouncy hook, assembling plucky synth arps, as the second minute approaches and the vocal refrain proves infectious. The saxophone’s concluding addition enamors, closing the track with stylish savvy.

The track comes via the band’s album Torch the Sound:
