Great post-rock bands excel at making music that can make the most mundane tasks like dusting the furniture, walking the dog through a trickling rain, building Star Wars models in your basement, seem like a positively epic undertaking. And Austin, Tx., four-piece the Calm Blue Sea nail that tone right from the beginning on this new song “We Will Never Be as Young as We Are Tonight,” from the band’s forthcoming full-length Arrivals & Departures. The song builds around a tense piano melody that eventually leads into moody, shoegaze-style vocals, which makes for a very ominous listening experience — perfect for anyone looking for some on-demand tension.
The Calm Blue Sea’s new album, Arrivals & Departures, is out October 9 on Modern Outsider. Stream “We Will Never Be as Young as We Are Tonight” below:
