July 25, 2012 Murals – Eyes of Love
With all this new throwback music coming out lately; the Pond music video, as well as Tame Impala’s first official single (and second unofficially) off of their upcoming album, I thought I’d throw in my own fresh oldie that came to my attention last week: a band called Murals. The Louisville band released their debut album On a Passing Cloud earlier this month after scrounging for money and time to produce this piece of mellow psychedelia. The album is a great summery mix, and Murals couldn’t have released it at a better time. One song in particular, “Eyes of Love” is particularly estival. It starts off with a quiet acoustic guitar arpeggio that gently drifts through quiet snares and soothing voice, all leading towards a bright chorus of piano and jazzy drum beats. It’s the perfect song for those rare summer days where, when it’s just the right temperature, you can lay down in the grass looking up at the cloudless sky as breeze touches your cheeks knowing you’ll rarely get a day like this. And when that day comes, have your headphones ready cause this song will be the icing on the cake.
