It isn’t hard to see why Brooklyn quartet Via Audio has become a favorite within the blogosphere and among fellow indie rockers like Spoon‘s Jim Eno, who produced their debut album saysomethingsaysome thingsaysomething — just check out the sparkling melodies of “Harder On Me.” A finely-tuned mix that’s rich in quick-stepping guitar riffs, swishing percussion, and a bossa nova-tinged chorus, this three-minute dream pop tune explores the sad truth of those who should care about you don’t always follow through. Guitarist Jessica Martins croons, “You don’t want to hear me / So you don’t / I don’t wanna be here / So I won’t,” tapping into the song’s warm, melancholic undercurrent. Feist and Postal Service fans get ready, Via Audio will woo you. And don’t let bad relationships hold you back, move on with saysomethingsaysomethingsaysomething, which drops September 25 via SideCho.
