Chains of Love "Pretend"

Chains of Love 'Pretend'
As previously reported, retro-minded popsters Chains of Love are issuing a new album next year, and one of the cuts that will figure on the Vancouver troupe's sophomore set is "Pretend." You can hear the track now.

As singer Nathalia Pizarro hinted at earlier, the track features a simmering horn section, in addition to the band's usual bag of tricks, from Pizarro's ultra-powerful pipes, to organ licks and Wrecking Crew-indebted arrangements. You can sample the song in the player down below.

As previously reported, the double A-side 7-inch single "Pretend"/"Misery Makers" arrives today (December 11) both physically and digitally via Manimal Vinyl. Expect the full-length, which has since been titled Misery Makers, in spring 2013.
