Published Nov 23, 2016Dreamy Montreal indie popsters Bodywash are currently putting finishing touches on their debut LP, and they're teasing its arrival with a new song called "Sunspots."
The hazy, psych-tinged "cream pop" jam is a swirl of ringing guitars, twinkling synths and breezy vocals that's enough to make anyone want back the long-gone days of summer. It takes listeners on a journey that travels through warm and cool patches of sound, finally finding its centre with an echoing vocal refrain that comes across like a mantra.
The track's sudden ending leaves off on what the band describe as "a question mark, abrupt and unresolved" — asking themselves and listeners: "Love is worth it, isn't it? Isn't it???"
Bodywash's next EP is being mixed with Taylor Smith and Austin Tufts, and is due out later this winter. Right now, though, you can listen to the premiere of lead single "Sunspots" in the player below.
