Brooklyn-duo Acrylics released their debut EP All Of The Fire back in ’09 to distinct praise, and with the distinction of being the first release on Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear’s Terrible Records. Two years on and there have been some changes — a new label (Friendly Fire), a new look. On their forthcoming debut full-length Lives And Treasure, the best elements of the project’s dusty, mildly McVie-mystic ’70s tilt remain, highlighted both in the Fleetwooding sound of “Nightwatch” (a track realizing the promise of “Molly’s Vertigo“) and its House Plants-directed video. The clip was shot at at The Wassaic Project, which is where to go for spooky houses and idyllic rivers with picturesque skies, apparently.
Lives And Treasure is out 3/1 via Friendly Fire.
