Check out our track of the week.
Just reading the lyrics of “Buoyancy,” a new track by Deep Sky Object (Comet Records), you’d expect the song to leave you mired in a puddle of uncertainty. To quote from the chorus: “Don’t bring me down / I’ll be sinking deep.”
But while the song’s repeated plea, familiar to anyone in an unstable relationship, gets bogged down on paper, the band’s synth specialist, “Pump,” deploys a contrasting and groovy electronic pop melody to keep it, well, buoyant. Match this with the lofty vocals, and the trio’s latest song has you floating over a pool of weighty uncertainties that are too far down to pull you under. www.fb.com/deepskyobject
