Last month we noted that "Love Light," the new single from David Wax Museum, sounded like their take on neo-soul. After hearing the band's latest single, it seems like their upcoming album may be their neo-soul album. With "Georgette" the soul vibes may be a little more subtle but they are still there. It's an upbeat while laid back song that features Wax crooning like we've never heard him do before. What gives "Georgette" such a unique sound is that the music and Suz Slezak's backing vocals and harmonizing have a lot more energy to them than Wax's laid back vocals do, which works perfectly. Plus, musically the song brings David Wax Museum further into the left of center folk music trajectory that they've been on for the last few albums.
On a Facebook post, David Wax Museum do their best to sell you their new song:
"Not quite ready for the holiday music bonanza? Need something peppy but slightly left of center, perhaps a song that addresses our ambivalence to our littlest technological devices. Well, then we've got the song for you!"
You can listen to "Georgette" below. Remember My Future comes out December 31. For more on David Wax Museum, check out the artist's website. Upcoming tour dates are below the song.
