Pitchfork premiered the new Spectrals track, “Milky Way”, today.
Here’s what they had to say about it …
"Louis Jones owns a soulful, idiosyncratic croon that’s reminiscent of Mac DeMarco at his most serious, and the British songwriter behind Spectrals places that voice front and center on his new single "Milky Way," pulled from the forthcoming Sob Story. Jones worked with former Girls member JR White on the single, and White’s influence is evident in the song’s simple, strummed guitar melody and beautiful, sudden choral expansion. Jones also has a knack for sharp, surprising lyrical turns, and "Milky Way" is no different, repeating and ending on a line that’s sweet but sure to cut deep: "She couldn’t be you if she tried."
