Track of the Day: 'Climbing Walls'

Past TracksThis happening, young Australian outfit shares a lot in common with the roster for buzzband label Modular--think hometown heroes Cut Copy or Brooklyn's Yeasayer--but also aren't far off from up-and-coming Los Angeles act Foster The People. In other words, we're heavily into the electro corner of indie rock here. There are big melodies and dashes of guitars in the mix, but the keyboards, vocals and production effects are the real stars.

It's the kind of tune I want to play loudly and repeat often. That, right there, is very definition of a Track of the Day as far as I'm concerned.
