Veteran Seattle duo the Winterlings‘ “Science” is an enjoyable, confounding mix of styles. The song combines elements of classic pop with lo fi folk, like the Shangri-Las if they were an Elephant 6 band. The simple repeated drum part is paired with harmonium, twinkling piano twiddlings and cowboy tremolo guitar chords. The production is roughly hewn – note the bass sitting way up in the mix – but the ambition and joy is palpable. Nicely done, Winterlings.
