If you ever wondered what would happen if you took a member of Twin Peaks and all of the members from the band Post Animal and curated a band, then you’re in luck as that’s occurred. Under the name Column, the six piece has emerged with a debut 7″ I & II due in August, and the band has released one of the songs as a black and white self-directed video you can stream below.
The song has this dreamy meets dreary mixture, cultivating folk and psych pop together in a chill wave sound. Almost as if the notes and the vocals were placed in the same level of importance, the folky noodling that plays underneath the group vocals offers a sound that’s relaxed but never boring. The vocal melodies alone here are noteworthy, offering a sound that’s closer to sixties pop than most things you’ll hear today.
“II” can be streamed on all platforms, it can be purchased digitally while I & II can be pre-ordered physically as a 7″ vinyl directly from Grand Jury Music. There’s no word of tour dates as of yet, though that may change.
