Keepaway "100"

Here's a new track from Brooklyn's Keepaway, which is apparently coming out on a 7" sharing its title with this song. "100" starts out with some looped percussion rolls before being overtaken by bright synth melodies, simple bass work, sparse drumming, subtle guitar upstrokes, and heavily reverberated falsetto vocals, all of which make up most of the short song. The mix is extremely dense, especially for a three-piece band, but every sound works together well enough to simultaneously convey a sense of longing and jubilance—not unlike playing a game of keepaway itself.
