Listen: Landlady’s bubbly new song “Dying Day”

on May 08, 2014, 5:15pm

Brooklyn indie pop outfit Landlady will release their new album, Upright Behavior, this summer through Hometapes. The band — which consists of Adam Schatz, Ian Chang, Mikey Freedom Hart, Ian Davis and Booker Stardrum — have already shared two LP cuts in “The Globe” and “Above My Ground”, and this week return with yet another called “Dying Day”.

Despite it’s rather morose title, the band don’t take themselves too seriously, bouncing around playfully while contemplating grey hair and death. “I think I’m getting better every day, I think I’m getting closer to my dying day,” Schatz sings merrily over a tangle of erratic, chipper, and criss-crossing guitars and drums. Further emphasizing the group’s lighthearted spirit, the song winds down with a pretty awesome gospel-tinged breakdown. Listen in below.

Upright Behavior arrives on July 15th via Hometapes. Check out the official tracklist, followed by the band’s upcoming tour schedule with Man Man, Amen Dunes, and more.
