I debated for a while which of the songs to feature today. Choosing between the track that best represents the album or the one that I see has the most talent is a difficult thing to do, but the decision is made and I chose the latter.
If for whatever reason the Bandcamp player isn't working for you, give the Myspace stream a try.
Make of the lyrics what you want, interpret them into whatever sounds right to you, go ahead and sing along to the catchy Sea Legs hook, but this song stands out because of the musical side behind all of that.
Halfway through the song and we get this amazing Post-Rock influenced instrumental/string of melodies, that really ties the album together and keeps you yearning for the rest of the album.
And if you dig the track as much as I do, you can find this little gem for free on the Bandcamp link (for now?). If you love it, consider giving the album a listen, maybe a purchase if you admire their efforts.

A really common sound is the twangy high pitched guitar licks that I associate the most with classic The Bravery and Coldplay tracks, but they go way beyond that with the Post base. Honestly, if not for that and the lyrics, they'd probably be another bland band.
And if you're rapidly becoming a fan, they'll have a brand new video out very soon. Follow them over at their Facebook or Twitter.
Or if you prefer, I'll probably be putting the video up on mine anyway.
