Small Black feat. Frankie Rose: Lines of Latitude

Experimental South London pop, Molly Ringwald's favorite jazz tunes, dreamy synth-pop and more in our weekly look at music

Brooklyn-based band Small Black add a little more sombreness to their dreamy synth-pop sound with their new track “Lines of Latitude,” from of their upcoming EP Real People. Harmonies with fellow Brooklynite Frankie Rose’s ethereal voice gives this track a Superhumanoids-meets-Shy-Girls (albeit more laid-back) vibe. This mystical love song takes its time without dragging down, thanks to a blend of electronic and acoustic percussion. (Rose has also just released a new song, “Honey Do” as part of her duo Beverly, with similar layered vocals but in an entirely different category of grunge rock). Real People will be released on 1 April 2014 from Jagjaguwar.
