Track of the Day: 'Stay Close'

Past TracksSpain's Delorean sets the standard for a style of house-drenched indie rock that has bubbled up into a full-fledged scene over the last year or so. Chillwave is what the hipsters call it. I'd call it the finest blend of glow-stick Balearic house and reverb-laden indie rock that sounds best out under the stars--rather than trapped in a dank club. (Though it works well there, too.) The new album, Subiza, marks a departure of sorts for this Basque four-piece. It's the band's first work composed entirely on laptops. And luckily, ten years as a touring indie band means there's a drummer programming the rhythms and a bass player dialing up digital bass lines.

Frontman Ekhi Lopetegi is working on his PhD in Philosophy when the band isn't on tour, so the lyrical content here is a cut above most club anthems. The finished product is just perfect for anyone struggling to hold onto summer.
