Museyroom are an East Coast trio working out of Brooklyn and Philadelphia, playing a buoyant form of acoustic pysch-pop that nudges the sounds of Vampire Weekend and Animal Collective in a rootsy direction while maintaining a bright sonic sheen. Though they’re just now getting ready to release their full length debut Pearly Whites, singer-guitarist Jack Donovan and multi-instrumentalist Ben Cohen have been collaborating since 2003. After playing with a series of bands, the two joined up with Matt Coppola, and and eventually became Museyroom, a Finnegan’s Wake-referencing name alluding towards a sort of “alternate dimension that the group would soon create with its musical output, sonically mirroring an unexplored, variable universe.”
“It Won’t Change Now” is the latest single off of Museyroom’s upcoming LP. The song showcases the band’s proclivity towards deep, ’50s pop-inspired harmonies as well as their seamless combination of organic-sounding folk elements and more modern synth tones. It’s a fun, jangly tune that makes classic elements sound modern. Listen below.
