This is an exciting new band and I love discovering new music that makes me listen to a song more than once in a row due to the fact that it is so good. Small Black are a slightly ethereal synth pop indie band from Brooklyn who’s music is along the chillwave lines if you want to get into genres. I do not want to pigeon hole this band as an indie band because they cross a number of genres seamlessly. Listen to Free At Dawn below to get an idea of what I mean.
Small Black have announced that they will release their new album, Limits of Desire on May 13, 2013 on the Jagjaguwar label. This is not a band that has just appeared on the scene, they have been working on their music since 2009 and in that time have put out a number of releases including a self released mixtape.
This band and their upcoming album are ones to watch as they craft their precise synth pop tracks and ethereal melodies to create imagery for the listener. Personally, I can’t wait to hear the Limits of Desire album!
