Funeral Advantage – “Gardensong” (Stereogum Premiere)
After unleashing multiple EPs and split releases over the past two years, Funeral Advantage will finally put out a proper full-length in August. The Boston-based dream-pop project belongs to Tyler Kershaw, who has developed a steady following in his home city and was just profiled by the Boston Globe. Body Is Dead is named after the record’s 10-minute-long closing track (which has yet to be released), and “Gardensong” is its second buoyant single. Funeral Advantage’s sound isn’t as dour as its name suggests, and Body Is Dead already sounds like an ideal soundtrack to late summer. Listen below.
Body Is Dead is out 8/25 via the Native Sound.
