Studded garage rock sound seeps from Populuxe’s “Garage Sale”.
Subtly psychedelic and overtly nostalgic, this track drags harmony over rhythm to a nuanced new dimension.
Who can view tomorrow?
Who can take today? Survival in the moment…
Makes more moments slip away.
“Just junk in a garage sale…”
Shaky, twisty tone-tipped taps lead us along a long lane, melodic, in “Garage Sale”.
String notes rush in like sea-breeze and shifty drums ride in on waves as driftwood. Mellow surfer vibes abound amidst rebounding, reverberating keys a-ringing.
No thoughts lie left over as the singer ponders life – the everyday, the hopes and dreams, the lingering longings. Rhythm revolts around the choruses, contributing to the tension drawn between thoughts and aspirations. It seems so simple of a song, but feels so full all the same.
True indie rockers can’t possibly keep from clicking play on this track. “Garage Sale” sells you on lush sonic texture, a tale tastefully intoned and too many moving parts to make succinct note of. Listen for yourself.
