The mellow-yet-upbeat song is off the band's forthcoming debut LP, 'You Are the Beat,' and their love of the Smiths and Belle and Sebastian is readily apparent. As singer/guitarist Jacob Danish Sloan tells Spinner, the track was part of a multi-band project and blends both happiness and heartache in its music and words.
"The song 'El Lissitzky' was conceived for a project in which a bunch of bands each wrote a song inspired by a famous painter of their choice," Sloan says. "It's about confusion, balancing creativity and love, and a classic combination: upbeat music and melancholy lyrics."
'You Are the Beat' is due out Feb. 15 on Kanine Records.
