The old saying goes that absence makes the heart grow fonder. Love and longing at a distance also makes for great pop songs, as San Francisco indie-pop upstarts Lungs and Limbs highlight on their new single, “Signs Of Life”.
Chronologically speaking, the band’s sound makes “Signs of Life” the perfect jam for your fun during the last few flickers of summer that fade into autumnal coziness. A little bit of summery, glistening pop, a dash of warm synths, and flange-y guitars make up the strong foundation of the track, officially out October 9.
Frontwoman Karina Rousseau has a certain Jenny Lewis-in-the-throes-of-Under The Blacklight quality to her voice that shines brightly here. The song, complete with sing-a-long chorus of oohs and ahs, feels like an ode to longing for someone, somewhere, far away. This is Lungs And Limbs’ debut single, and feels like the first step in the right direction for a young, up-and-coming band. The tune is a radio-ready piece of music that would reside comfortably on the end of your summer mixtape.
