Letting Up Despite Having a Really Long Band Name
The members of Letting Up Despite Great Faults sure love the ’80s/early ’90s. The Los Angeles band mixes new wave electro rock with with a bleary dream pop haze, and the song “Our Younger Noise” falls somewhere between Lush and New Order. Modern audiences will likely think of the Postal Service, although thankfully we don’t have to listen to Ben Gibbard being a whiney baby (sorry).

The track appears on the band’s self-titled debut from last year. It’s also got a lovely music video, which plays out like a romantic take on The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. If I could run around Los Angeles with a girl who looks like Amy Adams and magically warp into the forest and starting having a big party and throwing paper airplanes and toilet paper around, this is definitely the song I would want to be playing in the background.
