Today's SOTD comes from the incredible Brooklyn-based electro-indie pop outfit, Corbu
. The song is called "Battles" and is off of their forthcoming album, Crayon Soul
, out August 5th, which couldn't come sooner.
Both lyrically and melodically, this song is reminiscent of Death Cab For Cutie. There's a slight vulnerability in the vocals but also a sense of liberation. It also seems to have come out at the most perfect time, with everything going on in the world right now. It could be an anthem for self-empowerment but also togetherness -- we are all fighting battles, but we'll make it through.
The band is also throwing an album release party on August 5th at The Mercury Lounge in NYC. For more dates and info, you can check here
