Youth Portal takes a leaf out of the languid indie pop of Chicago band Smith Westerns.
It’s not terribly complicated, but it’s got buckets of charm.
It’s a straightforward cut built around a driving 4/4 backbeat, a singular guitar hook and two wonderful sounding chords. Sometimes that’s all you need.
It’s the kind of music that inspires you to want to make some yourself, by just how easy and effective it all sounds.
