As a small number of you may be aware, Toronto-based band Shy Kids first started releasing music back in 2012, however beyond an original three-track EP, they hadn't released anything new since.
Then, seemingly out of nowhere, on Monday they uploaded their debut album Lofty! (which is a FREE download!) onto SoundCloud, and I have fallen in love with it.
An intelligent maze of loopy melodies and feel-good vocals, the album's shining light comes in the form of lead single "®ockets". A futuristic, mind-bending number, "®ockets" ebbs and flows like a sugar rush, feeding off the syrupy lyrics, rich guitars, and synths that bring this track to life.
Complementing the song's creative imagination perfectly, the music video for "®ockets" (which is made entirely out of sweets) can be viewed below.
