New Paellas: “Pears”

No rest for Osaka’s Paellas, even after releasing one of the year’s better EPs back in January. They are prepping a new double-side single, and shared new song “Pears” this weekend (the other one is called “Distance” — so maybe this one, back when they were a bit more fuzzy rock?). “Pears” is certainly of the Paellas now, as it is another mid-tempo shuffler that would probably get you bobbing along on the drunken walk home from a night out. But it’s all undercut by a downtrodden mood the band specialize in, that funky strut offset by vocals that sound close to tearing up. Listen above.
