It Looks Sad. - "Ocean" (Stereogum Premiere)

“Ocean” is the closing track from It Looks Sad.’s upcoming debut EP, and while it’s built on a post-punk backbone, it has more in common with the early math rock of Foals or the heavy pop of WU LYF. In fact, vocalist Jimmy Turner shares the same mumbling, cathartic quality that made the WU LYF record so special, always swallowing his own words and never quite settling into the music. Listen below.

Their debut self-titled 7″ is out this summer via Tiny Engines.

  1. I love this. And that Foals/Wu Lyf description is pretty apt.

  2. If Jesse Lacy decided to get drunk as fuck and record the next Brand New record in his uncle’s basement on a lark it would sound just like this. And by that I mean this fucking rules.
