In our corner of the music world we get emailed plenty of ideas of who we can cover. When we were sent an email about a band called Routine, we figured they were one of the many bands that goes by that name. What we were unaware of was that it’s a duo made up of Annie Truscott of Chastity Belt and Melina Duerte of Jay Som. With a new E.P. coming in a few weeks, their lead single “Cady Road” is definite ear candy you’re sure to love.
The sway of how the track begins lends itself to a chasm of tones. The wondrous and melodic notes blend perfectly with the dual vocals in a way that feels like magic before your eyes. The well arranged track sparkles with pop structure while embodying an uplifting sound that stays with you well after you hear it. There’s a lot here to dig into between the heavy pedal worked guitar to the beat that plays underneath a cluster of vocals. It’s all deep and spiritual at the same time.
“Cady Road” can be heard above or wherever you stream music. And Other Things is ready to preorder directly from Dead Oceans on multiple formats ahead of its November 20 release date.
