New Pictured Resort: “Southern Highway”

Wind-swept indie-pop outfit Pictured Resort have a new EP out in early September, which I guess is close enough to the summer…but thankfully, they’ve shared the title track now, which is perfect for warmer times. “Souther Highway” is a breezy mid-tempo number, one featuring the in-no-rush guitar playing guided by an easy-going beat, interrupted only by some synthesizer notes and the occasional drum machine strike. Ultimately, the group’s defining sonic footprint is the vocals, which are delivered in a slower cadence that pulls off the tightrope of sounding chilled out…and also heightening the drama of every year (the most immediate comparison remains Lake Heartbeat). Listen to it above.
