Why do we like this?

The Brooklyn artist Renata Zeiguer has released three tracks from her upcoming debut album, Old Ghost, scheduled to come out on February 23rd. "Wayside" kicks off the album with a groovy indie rock atmosphere evocative of a day at the beach gone awry.

A gentle guitar paints the picture of a sunny day under a walloping bass drum. Seagulls strut and all is calm. The melody skirts out of tune but only for a second, foreshadowing what's to come. Zeiguer's vocals are a bit stale and recycled. But expectations shatter when her voice does the kind of tonal acrobatics I've only seen from a vocalist like Nai Palm.

The chorus greets us with dissonance, even noise. Cymbals smash with the energy of a punk band, but reeled back enough to not take center stage. Instead, layered harmonies fly in a slightly different key than you'd imagine.

Is this some kind of noise rock-dream pop hybrid? I suppose I'll let you form your own pretentious conclusion -- or just enjoy a groovy tune.
