It's been a while since I checked in with The Mary Onettes. Nearly seven years have passed since their self-titled debut appeared, featuring outstanding and nostalgia-inducing cuts like "Lost" and "Void".
Since then they've released two more albums, and are now set to release a mini-album said to be inspired by science fiction and old photography books. "Naive Dream" is track two on the album, while the first track, "Silence is a Gun" is also available on Soundcloud:
"Naive Dream" is in their familiar breezy electro/synth-pop style, albeit not quite as overtly 80s-nostalgia-inducing as much of their earlier work, but some ghostly guitar effects and a tiny pitch wobble add a subtly unsettling feeling of mystery and suspense.
Portico is out on Labrador Records, March 4th.
