Brilliance has become the standard for Portland-based indie-pop outfit Small Leaks Sink Ships. With their new tune they have upheld that standard with the second track off their forthcoming EP Polaroid People. The new song is called “Broken Church Bells” and it’s one of their most beautiful songs to date.
As always the four-piece indie pop outfit has produced a highly emotional song that is delivered with precision and tenacity. It begins quiet and slow, and crescendos into an explosion of sound–the sort of musical release that only Small Leaks are capable of.
Polaroid People is the first music Small Leaks has released without one foot in the desert that they loathed so much and if this is their new direction there is nothing but good things on the horizon for the boys formerly from Oak Street.
