When we tell you Brooklyn indie pop-rock quartet bridges and powerlines' latest release Better is an all-encompassing musical embodiment of their home city, we're not exaggerating. Each of the five tracks on the EP is named after a BK neighborhood, and we're pleased to premiere the music video for its opener "Bushwick".
With a flashy Nintendo-washed entrance, the song swiftly kicks into a growling punk anthem whose synth and piano-glittered melody and firey pulse display a premiere example of an indie/pop/punk fusion. It's an infectious power ballad that will have you prepared to take on any challenge. The music video is a visual narrative of such a triumph.
Tonight bridges and powerlines are taking their tunes of Brooklyn across the river to headline a show at Mercury Lounge. We'll see y'all there!
