Baltimore boasts an all-star roster of indie stalwarts, including Lower Dens, Beach House, Future Islands, and Animal Collective, to name just a few. Next month will see the full-length debut of another up-and-coming Charm City band: Sun Club, which will release their effervescent introduction to the world, The Dongo Durango (out October 30 via ATO Records).
“Summer Feet” is the second listen from the four-piece crew’s nine-track effort, which comes after a metamorphosis over ten years from metalheads to a grunge band to indie-pop songwriters not unlike their jangly spirit animals on the other coast, Local Natives. Drummer Devin McCord keeps a lightly driving pace not unlike the spokes of bike wheels hitting the hot concrete, while joyously gulping vocals sail overhead.
Listen here, and watch the band’s cozily tropical session performance of another Dongo Durango cut, “Tropicoller Lease,” below.
