Rupert Angeleyes are a Minneapolis band that specializes in ’60s psych-pop pastiche, all undulating patterns and pastel colors. The band name, much like the music, elicits an immediate reaction: It’s earnest and a little corny, maybe even bordering on too much so, but it’s also endearing and unforgettable. “Jealousy” is the lead single from their forthcoming proper debut, Young Sunset, and it struts into the room with a laissez-faire attitude, backed by warbled guitar and overlapping melodies. And for as envious as the lyrics are, it still feels as light as a feather. Listen below.
Young Sunset is out 11/18 on Forged Artifacts.
