NEW MUSIC: Western Affairs – Laura
by Gregorio Vincent
Western Affairs is a three-piece dreampop group based in Washington DC. Their eclectic sound comes from an array of influences from new experimental pop DC bands to bizarre avant-garde sounds. While staying true to their style, live performances turn into ambient experimental sessions, incorporating noise, orchestral key modulations, and oscillating drums you would only expect to hear in the soundtrack for Stanley Kubrick’s 2000: A Space Odyssey. Check out Western Affairs’ song “Laura” off their new EP 2000 and look out for it when it drops July 10.
