first popped up on my radar last year with the raw fiercely addictive number "Nightmares of Candy Yang & The Black Italian," a track band member Derek Burdette composed while banging away on his phone and a chord organ after waking up from a nightmare about two past failed relationships. The duo's newest track, "Falling Up," works around a similar visceral and emotional release with raw home-recorded vocal harmonies billowing and building into sublime heights. The moment this song turns into real headphone candy though is at the 3:35 mark when that flurry of keys hits and launches the harmonies into the stratosphere. Dig in below, and grab the cassette single from Old Flame Records.
