AOTD: Tiny Victories - Those of Us Still Alive EP

Tiny Victories
Those of Us Still Alive EP
Self-released, 2012

For an EP titled Those of Us Still Alive, it sure contains a lot of imagery of death and dying. And yet, there's a weirdly warm sense of comfort in these lush, sun-dappled chillwave-y tunes. Tiny Victories combine dense sonics with simple pop-friendly melodies in a way that makes their songs sound unique but familiar. The opener "Mr. Bones" joins Okkervil River's "Your Past Life as a Blast" on the list of wildly successful songs with very little melodic variation. It's really gorgeous, though, in a Cut Copy-goes-yacht-rock way, and one listen is enough to have you humming it all day. So far, the Brooklyn duo, composed of Greg Walters and Cason Kelly, have released just these five tracks, but they should serve as quite the aperitif for anyone seeking a dreamier, less-chirpy incarnation of Passion Pit.
