Later this month, rising Israeli synthpop outfit Garden City Movement will release their new EP, Bengali Cinema. In anticipation, the trio has let loose two new songs, “Lir” and the EP’s title track.
Much like the mesmerizing lead single “Terracotta” and the band’s 2013 Entertainment EP, both tracks are laced with intricately-drawn, gorgeous atmospherics. “Lir” keeps things cool, a breezy whirlwind of woozy vocal samples and tantalizing percussion. Meanwhile, “Bengali Cinema” seduces with more lush crooning, an uptempo pace, and a bevy of colorful, worldly sounds. Listen in below.
