Perpetuals - "Downtown Apartment"

Photo by Henry Acteson
There's a lot of retro-leaning neo-soul out there these days, but none of it sounds quite like Perpetuals. "Downtown Apartment" is a pure old school sounding soul song. But... something about it is just slightly different. It almost has these quirky instrumental choices that you don't really expect. Retro soul typically fits squarely in a certain box, but "Downtown Apartment" edges out of the box occasionally, taking a genre that's normally set in its ways into new and welcome directions. It's almost like neo-soul meets Neutral Milk Hotel or Pavement, while still remaining solidly in the soul category.

You can watch the video for "Downtown Apartment" below. The single is available now via Keeping On Records. For more on Perpetuals, check them out on Facebook and Bandcamp.
