There's a lot that's new in the world ofCosta Mesa
indie-pop quartetThe New Limb
, recently named best indie band in the county by the OC Music Awards. They already have "new" in their name, so they're kinda used to this stuff.
Two new songs went upat the band's blog
this past week. Take a listen to "Birds and Stuff." Ultra earnest and a little weird, it's the kind of song you can imagine Stars penning when they were getting their start. The synths wobble while Joey Chavez and Lauren Salamone trade sour and sweet nothings ("I feel like you're a cold I caught" goes one line). It'd all just benice
if not for the chorus, which manages to be both a mouthful (more than 25 quickly sang syllables!) as well as an ear-worm.
