Seldom Family's latest single, "Early Fascination," is a transportive tune. Couched in the musical language of a few decades past (it's hard not to want to append "-wave" somewhere in its description), it carries a sense of somewhat directionless nostalgia that makes it feel both immediately familiar and a bit wistful. The song is certainly lamenting something—what that is probably depends on the listener's interpretation.
It's reminiscent of Turnover's sound on last year's Peripheral Vision—smoothly textured, awash in dreamy guitars, and yet brimming with emotion. "Early Fascination" is a surprisingly powerful track, and, coming so swiftly on the heels of Seldom Family's self-titled debut, hopefully one that heralds a prolific future for the band.
