Eldoradio – ‘Youth Cult’

Eldoradio-768x507

Eldoradio teased their forthcoming new album with the dusky, soft centered, swooning โ€˜Pipe Dreamsโ€™ in the latter part of 2017 and the Swedish outfit are back with another intriguing taster in ‘Youth Cult’.

While its predecessor was built around a rather gentle acoustic strum and a warm organ hum that swelled to swallow all in its wake, ‘Youth Cult’ is much more of a meatier proposition. A distorted synthesizer paves the way for a propulsive kraut-inspired groove with pushes everything relentlessly through a series of soaring riffs, anthemic sing-a-long choruses and crashing percussion. The synth/kraut combo is a revelation, giving ‘Youth Cult’ its alluring edge that hums with an electricity threatens to spark and explode at any moment. There is a hint of early Toy meets Wilco’s ‘Spiders (Kidsmoke)’, and there is nothing wrong with that combo whatsoever.

Aside from the new single, there is no other update on the forthcoming new record so it still a case of watch this space. For the time being, get yourself acquainted with ‘Youth Cult’.

Eldoradio – ‘Pipe Dreams’

Swedish outfit Eldoradio first introduced themselves with debut single Black & Blue in 2015, and quickly followed by debut LP 21st Century Explosive Sound in 2016.

The band returned toward the end of last year with a more stripped-back, melancholic and touching take on their indie-tones single in the shape of ‘Pipe Dreams’. It is a dusky, soft centered, swooning song that greets us with a rather gentle acoustic strum and slide, embraced in turn by a warm organ hum, which swells to swallow all in its wake. Add to that a melodic and melancholic twist, and a distinctive deep drawl filled with feeling and emotion, really bring home the poetic lyrics. An intimate, intricate and captivating song from start to finish – it is hard to not be moved by this little gem.

Hopefully there is similarly superb stuff from Eldoradio throughout 2018 but for now, you can listen to ‘Pipe Dreams’ below:
