The silky pop sheen of Literature’s “New Jacket” is both dreamy and electric. On their latest track, the Philly band employs wavy riffing and jangly chord progressions that float through a speedily bobbing drum fill. Nathaniel Cardaci’s clouded falsetto blends into ‘60s power pop flourishes, only occasionally coming up for air and letting his voice slice through the song’s lush textures. The video is equally bright, layering shots of the band’s live performance with sunny, outdoor scenes of flowers and greenery.

Literature’s latest release, Chorus, is out now via Slumberland Records.
