As I discovered at a live set of theirs earlier this year, Dance, Charlatan! is all about concocting musical mixtures of surf vibes, smooth indie pop and garage rock. This stays true as the Wallingford, CT trio released a brand new track called “Nickels” in anticipation of the impending arrival of their EP, Bouquet.
With “Nickels”, the band melodically dials things down a bit but doesn’t hold back their edgy side. Simplistic and jangly guitar riffs provide the backbone for the track and Kyle Hurley’s vocal spectrum adapts to the instrumentals in a similar manner. Bouquet will feature five additional brand new tracks and will be available on Tuesday May 20.
