It’s a damn shame those pesky Boston Music Awards ballots aren’t still open, because the nomination committee would likely have high interest in Soft Pyramids’ new song “Until It Hurts.”
Exhibiting a new sound, new-ish lineup, and some of its members working new instrumentation (bassist Shaun Curran switched over to keys; Max Liebman joined as bassist), Soft Pyramids have a bit of unique freshness going on. “Until It Hurts” positions the band’s October 5 album Lowrey Go Go as a must-hear; it feels like their very own “Paranoid Android,” a long (nearly six minutes) winding track that shape-shifts and dodges in and out of groove traffic while incorporating keyboards, vintage combo organs, and one sinister synth bassline. It’s easy to get lost in during that extended outtro.
