EZTV – “Soft Tension” (Stereogum Premiere)

EZTV are the finest blend of laid-back college rock and ’60s-reminiscent pop. Following their “Dust In The Sky” 7″ and a string of Northeast concerts, today the Brooklyn trio shares “Soft Tension” from their upcoming debut album Calling Out. The catchy power-pop single embodies classic American rock with chiming guitars, instrumental layers, and piles of harmonies singing emotionally lingering phrases like “soft tension here with you.” It’s a mellow yet upbeat tune that makes you want to blast it on a car drive as the sun’s rays pour through the open windows, familiar yet unquestionably new. Listen below along with prior single “Trampoline.”
