Just three months after releasing their self-titled pseudo-debut, Shirley and the Pyramids are back with a two-track teaser.
TOUR TAPE is largely instrumental and, despite having just two songs, clocks in at more than 25 minutes long.
The record opens with the 22-minute-and-23-second-long “TRAIN SONG.” The song floats in, with its oddball sound bites anchored by a soothing, echoey drip-drop of bass. The deep, almost-not-there vocals act as another instrument, as another piece of this auditory puzzle.
Soon, the marathon song floats into another sonic landscape, almost like a film score. This interlude feels like you’re in a space ship, floating through far-away galaxies.
Then, the track turns quick. It has more of a pop feel, but maybe pop in space – like you’ve come out the other side of the wormhole.
That strangely happy tone is continued on the next track, “OLD FATE.” It’s a dizzying song, with its laser sounds and its futuristic 70s vibe. But it most certainly plasters a smile on your face.
