You Blew It! – “Lanai” (Stereogum Premiere)

When we named You Blew It!’s Keep Doing What You’re Doing one of the best albums of the year, I wrote about the band’s arresting sincerity and the way in which they transfigure common tropes into memorable refrains. “Lanai” is the first single off of the You Blew It!’s forthcoming EP, Pioneer Of Nothing, which will be released early next year on Jade Tree. The song maintains the same level of intimacy found on Keep Doing What You’re Doing and doesn’t stray from well-formulated vocal harmonies that go almost unnoticed upon first listen.
