[PREMIERE] Urban Cone – “Black Ocean” & “Kings & Queens”

tears will fall like lemon drops and split your heart in two

We’ve heard Urban Cone make some beautiful noises before but my true test of any great band is how they handle their mellow jams (see Brand New). Urban Cone dial it down wonderfully in the elegant, minimal, and still catchy “Black Ocean.” Tension swells with the oncoming drums and just as it climaxes it turns back around and slips out the door it snuck through. For another new taste of these Swedish kings get on the bouncy “Kings & Queens.” Synths & handclaps dance it out as we wait for the US release of the Our Youth EP on December 4th. They do have a cool urban scavenger hunt game going on in Europe to unlock new tracks. Check it out at their website.
