Brooklyn-based TOLEDO – AKA the pairing of Dan Alvarez and Jordan Dunn – have kept us well stocked with irresistible, lush and melodic indie-folk delights.
The pair have returned with a new single called ‘Challenger’, which offers yet another delightfully charming slice of understated melodic indie folk sound. ‘Challenger’ is a woozy and heartfelt jam that wanders, chilled & relaxed, song a meandering groove as subtle bassline bubbles beneath a sea of warm shimmering tones and bright dreamy guitars while soft melodic vocals purr breathily above. It builds and builds, slowly and steadily to climax with a rich swell of organ and heart melting emotional pull with its tender vocal imbued and pang of melancholy. ‘Challenger’ is rich and dreamy, and brimming with sweetness and charm, and bewitching us in the process.
Listen to ‘Challenger’ below now – as per usual, TOLEDO don’t disappoint.
