Los Angeles quartet Northern American are set to release the title track from their forthcoming debut album ‘Modern Phenomena‘ on May 4th. The “shuffly dream-pop” new single is now premiering at The Line Of Best Fit.
“It builds up from layers of chiming guitars and ruffled-feather percussion, evolving gradually into a Brit-pop splashed piece of shuffly dream-pop. It’s built for breezy summer sunshine and experiencing life-defining epiphanies in the great outdoors. It’s even got ruddy church bells.”
