LISTEN: Small Black Return with Clubby “Boys Life”

New album Best Blues is out in October

Since their charmingly glo-fi debut EP, Brooklyn four piece Small Black have steadily grown more lucid and polished with each release.

Following in the footsteps of last year’s Real People EP, their newest track “Boys Life” is a lush dance groove. Piano chords ring out atop a dancey four-on-the-floor beat, while melodic samples pan to-and-fro à la Caribou.

The new track comes ahead of the band’s upcoming third full-length Best Blues, which is out October 16 on Jagjaguwar. The new album was mixed by Nicholas Vernhes (The War on Drugs, Deerhunter) at Brooklyn’s Rare Book Room Studio.
