So Many Wizards :: "Nico"

The bedroom/laptop pop of So Many Wizards' single "Nico" rides a metronomic riff into the middle of a Dramamine haze, swelling and reeling in waves. The centering influence is the insistence of the snare and a looping keyboard riff that moves with the devilish malaise of the most laissez-faire attitudes. Of course, this Los Angeles band has their eyebrow raised fully at the emotional homicide to which they allude, titling their record Love Songs For When You Leave Me. On, "Nico", the lyrics are nearly indecipherable but the message still comes through with total clarity: Break it off and see if you can raise my pulse above this steady, unrelenting beat.
