Sunglasses return two years after their self-titled debut EP with the split single Swim/Namesake. "Swim" is one of the many highlights from their debut full-length, Wildlife. Simultaneously grounded in 60's Spector-esque production and the experimental rock of millennial Flaming Lips, the track is an emotional, lushly symphonic pop masterwork. Piano, harp, strings and round-robin vocals take the lead on "Namesake" before a thudding beat kicks the track into full motion. Each track is paired with two versions that highlight the underlying song. Julian Wass' remix turns "Swim" into a late-night arpeggiated electronic epic while the Alternate Version plays like a long lost Bauhaus track. Marshall Trotter covers "Namesake" as a freak-country ballad and the band shares the Cassette Tape Demo that helped lock down the song. Though undoubtedly headphone-friendly, the new music from Sunglasses never sacrifices songwriting while pouring on the experimentation.
