Austin’s Sweet Spirit has always found a way to tinker between the lines. Sometimes sultry and often sweaty, they’ve definitely found a space between the indie pop and indie rock world. While their new album Trinidad is coming at the end of this month, their new single “Llorando” continues to blur the lines between genres in the most infectious and fun way.
Things quickly go from tamed and subdued to wild and funky on this song. The way the bass creates a sexy vibe and the vocals almost shimmer above the music is like nothing else in the modern music world. Almost like something from an unreleased musical, the theatrics within the song are evident as the band gets down while their sound encourages you to do the same. It’s somewhere in the midst of seventies disco and modern dance pop, yet it’s more than that. It’s just what Sweet Spirit does.
The song is available to stream above or on streaming platforms. Trinidad is ready for preorder directly from Merge Records ahead of its May 29 release date.
