With their second EP, Settle In, already settled in (get it?) after dropping a month back, Brisbane's Pigeon have released their third single off the record. After the success of "Curtain Call" and "Two Moon Love," the five-piece have left their best until last on the catchy number "Climbing Trees."
One of Australia's most unheralded indie pop acts, Pigeon showcases all their strengths on the new single. Pigeon is one of the finest exponents of synth this country possesses, and their subtle shifts from powerful, driving choruses to softer, laid-back interludes are a joy to behold. Combined with bubbly vocals, pumping percussion, and just a touch of cowbell, you have the perfect recipe for a catchy pop song. All that's missing is a sax solo from band member Luke Cuerel (aka #PartyLuke) -- you'll have to give the rest of the EP a listen for that!
Recorded, mixed, and produced independently, Settle In is a really great EP. Check it out in full on the band's SoundCloud. You'd do well to check out the sexy film clip for their previous single "Two Moon Love" below (NSFW; I've always wanted to say that).
