new sound: ski lodge

I’m never quite sure how to describe a band that sounds like Ski Lodge.  With shades of the Smiths, indie pop seems to be the genre name of choice, but that one never sits quite right with me.

I would make up a genre name for it, but no one wants to be the one to inflict another “chillwave” on the world.

So I guess you’ll just have to take my word for it and take a listen to the Brooklyn-based band.  The band already has an EP, but they’ve recently a sweet new single “Just To Be Like You“: 

There’s also a slightly disturbing video for the track, which you can watch below:

[Trigger warning: It’s got scenes with snow in it. If you’re in the southern half of the U.S. headed into a brutal summer, you might want to skip this one to avoid extreme envy.]


They just finished up a tour with Chad Valley – where I caught them on Tuesday – and there’s plans for a full-length sometime in the future.

For now, here’s one more song, “Chandeliers”, this one from their self-titled EP:


new sound is an occasional series featuring new and emerging bands.

  1. Cool tracks. They are very Smiths aren’t they.
