Need help cutting through the noise? Allow me to introduce
you to No Second Troy.
hypnotic indie band out of DC, they've just released their new album, Narcotic.
Spin magazine's Joseph Coscarelli had this to say about their first single:
a name with a William Butler Yeats poem, No Second Troy are not shy
their bookish origins, exhibiting a fine-tuned literary finesse
on their bittersweet new single.
"Into Your Sun" is an earnest,
articulate love song with a touch of sentimental longing
tender acoustic guitars and tinkering piano lay the groundwork. The
video treatment, directed by Brent Green, presents flickering
fragments interspersed with
a handwritten narrative, beautifully
complimenting the song's frailty with warm imagery.
Like scenes out of
an I-Spy book or snippets from
pictures you might find browned and
curling in the attic, the romantic
wistfulness and youthful nostalgia of the clip serve to
song's serene glow. Narcotic, No Second Troy's self-released full-length
album, is out now. JOSEPH COSCARELLI
