Call them electronic folk or experimental pop – however you frame it up, Philly four-piece My Son Bison writes some damn catchy music. After playing North Star Bar last night with North Carolina five-piece Matrimony, the band dropped a pair of brand new tunes on Bandcamp today – its first output since debuting a year ago with a self-titled EP.
Electric Singles is a big step up in production from the lower-fi, rougher-round-the-edges debut. “Vermin” has a sleek New Wave feel, with intricate chord changes and very studied (almost jazzy) solos intertwined with purely poppy piano and vocal hooks. “Stable Places” skews a bit more theatrical a la early Pattern is Movement, but is no less infectious. Check out the EP below and keep tabs on MSB’s Facebook page for news of when they’re playing live next.
