HOW SAD doesn’t quite exude the feeling of an uptempo, feel-good band, but their debut single certainly does. Aside from their very inaptly titled band name, the Montreal group have given us a joyful pop ballad to add to our summer playlist. The song, “Indian Summer,” shares many key elements to other synth-pop jams, but what makes it so special is its heavily synthesized vocals. To add to this, the band have included some sweet n’ sugary keys and a number of incredibly catchy lyrical hooks. When combined, these essential ingredients create a bubbly and infectious product, perfect for enjoying by the pool.
