Single Review – Silversun Pickups – Circadian Rhythm (Last Dance)

The L.A band have spent a decade releasing material now and they continue to do so this year with the September 25th release of their fourth studio album Better Nature. The most recent single from the album is ‘Circadian Rhythm (Last Dance)’ and see’s the band sticking with an alternative sound as opposed to the larger role that Dream Pop and Shoegaze played in their earlier releases. The overdubbed guitars only play minor, supporting roles in this track of crisp, rotating rhythm sections and percussion. Brian Aubert and Nikki Monniger’s similar and interchanging vocals work well off each other in making the melodies and tune more prominent and in producing some of the smoothest harmonising you can find amongst alternative music. Not a bad effort from a band that shows it’s experience well.
