Small Black – “No One Wants It To Happen To You”
Last month, the Brooklyn synthpop group Small Black announced plans to follow up their very good 2013 album Limits Of Desire with a new one called Best Blues, and they shared its first single “Boys Life.” Today, they chase “Boys Life” with “No One Wants It To Happen To You,” a lovely piece of shimmering longing. The members of Small Black are probably sick of getting compared to New Order, but this track has major New Order vibes, and that is absolutely not a bad thing. Listen below.
Best Blues is out 10/16 on Jagjaguwar.
