Why do we like this?
Twenty five seconds in, and I was hooked on San Fermin's "Sonsick." Fifty seconds in, and I was pleasantly surprised by the instrumentation and orchestral, chamber pop sound.

San Fermin, on Downtown Records (the same label as Indie Shuffle favorites Houses!), is new to the scene. Backed by Yale music composition graduate Ellis Ludwig-Leone, who wrote the entire debut album in six weeks, the band also boasts duo Lucius -- Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig.

According to Pitchfork, single "Sonsick," has "a Dirty Projectors-light touch when it comes to translating conservatorial chops into pretty shimmy-worthy, utterly euphoric pop" -- and while I'm not entirely sure what they mean about "conservatorial chops" (ugh, Pitchfork, why don't you write in plain English?), I definitely agree that it's shimmy-worthy and euphoric. Even though there's a lot going on in "Sonsick," there's no doubt that San Fermin makes all of the elements work, molding it into an uber-catchy track that begs to be re-played when it ends.

We're very much looking forward to hearing more tracks from the self-titled album, which will be released on Downtown Records September 17.
