TVD Premiere: Soft Pyramids, “Paper Houses”

Boston’s Soft Pyramids go for the woozy atmospherics on their sophomore release Planes, which they are releasing digitally October 28. On tracks like “Paper Houses,” which we’re happy to be premiering, the guitars make their pointed, jangle interchange while the world-weary voice of Dwight Hutchenson moans about trebles echoing all night long.

Sounds like something that might happen in their native Napoleon Complex rehearsal studio and space in Somerville, Massachusetts, where Hutchenson joined bassist Shaun Curran, guitarist John Christensen, drummer Matthew Glover, and new member Aaron Sprays on keyboards for sounds that we are led to believe happened spontaneously—“born in the first minutes of rehearsal while the amps were just being turned on,” their press release says.

Would that all music making would come so efficiently! The impending Planes will be the latest from the band that formed in 2010 and has since released an EP and a number of singles before their debut LP Fossils of the Free World. Planes so far sounds more loose and assured than before—and a flight worth booking.

Soft Pyramids play the Lilypad in Cambridge, MA, with Future Carnivores on October 15.
