For some good warm weather to fall transition music, check out the newly streaming video for Hellogoodbye's (Everything Is) Debatable, off their third-coming full length of the same name.
The song begins with an undeniably indie sounding synth-organ played behind the twitched repetition of tuned "doo-doo-doo" falsetto that steadily transforms into a retro conglomeration of Animal Collective and every song from the 80's. The boyishly charming vocals of Forrest Kline pop right in, backed by snappy snares and a simple, soulful rhythm guitar to set the mood before leading to a groovy chorus ready for any shag-carpet laden car stereo.
Hellogoodbye have come a long way from the teeny-bob pop route of their debut Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs!, with it's infectious cheese and dopey heart throb lyricism. After stripping down to a less electro, more guitar-driven, summery Pet Sounds, version of themselves with their 2011 sophomore effort, Would It Kill You?, the group are out for their third release. This time around, on (Everything Is) Debatable, they look to take the lighter rock side and tweak it with some twitchy electro spazz that's not quite as ready for the club floors as it is the college dorm laptop speakers.
(Everything Is) Debatable drops on Oct. 29.
