The Austin based indie dream-pop band Letting Up Despite Great Faults was founded by Mike Lee in 2006. Since then the band has released three albums, with a new record, Neon, coming out on August 12th. Letting Up make beat-driven, super catchy songs that result in jangly indie rock anthems. It’s been two years since the band’s last record, and during that time Mike Lee moved from Los Angeles to Austin which he said gave him a renewed sense of creativity. On Neon, as with their previous releases, the shimmering, shiny guitars, keyboards and drums lock in with precision and Lee continues to write joyously melodic songs. If you’re a fan of Death Cab, Passion Pit, and Ride, you should dig into Letting Up’s catalogue. You can start by download “Wrapped” below.
