Recently, Chicago’s Varsity inked to Run For Cover Records and while they’re working on a new album out next year, they’ve decided to release a collection of singles from a couple of years ago. With The Basement Takes 2015-2016, the band gives fan stand alone singles in one package, including two never released songs as well. One of those unheard songs, “Second Act” has just been released and it’s definitely worth getting into your life.
The song opens with a mix of synth and guitar to hone in on a catchy sound before the soft vocals draw your ears closer. The snappy and up tone of the song shouldn’t be lost as the hooks keep coming at every turn while the band navigates between pop structures wrapped in an indie rock package. The song is so catchy that you’ll want to hear it again and again before grabbing the upcoming album for your collection.
The song can be streamed on all streaming sites and it can be purchased in all online record stores while The Basement Takes 2015-2016 can be pre-ordered directly from Run For Cover Records ahead of its November 15 release. Varsity is set to perform at Schubas Tavern in Chicago, IL on November 30.
