The Indie Song of the Day for this Monday comes from Toronto. We found out about the band from great indie music asset DailyUnsigned.com. The band is called Fast Romantics and Rob Daily of Daily Unsigned said it best in his post:
Fast Romantics deliver an amalgamation of everything that you are going to melt over.
The band's album, American Love plays like a soundtrack to an 80's teenage romance movie. Even though, lyrically that might not be the best description.
From the band's bio:
“I was falling pretty hard in love when we started the record,” explains frontman and lyricist Matthew Angus. “But the rest of the world went mad. This bizarre election in the United States started up just as everybody’s obsession with social media hit some kind of peak, and suddenly everyone was talking about America. It started seeping into the songwriting, and now I’m not even sure what came first. Are they love songs about politics or political songs about love?”.
Listen to the title track from American Love below.
