The Tropics have been on a video rampage of late, dropping shorts for two tracks off their forthcoming EP Wind House – first for “Sons & Daughters” and then last week a new video for “Fireproof” – in the last month alone. While we’ve now heard those two songs plus “Sleepless” (which the band released a video for back in May), The Tropics have yet to unveil the album en totale … until now.
Yes, we here at The Bay Bridged are ecstatic to be giving you the first full listen to Wind House, which is now streaming on Bandcamp before it officially drops next Tuesday, October 28 on Portland-via-Oakland label Breakup Records. Driven by Claire George’s stirring vocal performances, the five-track release is full of deliciously rich indie pop, replete with jangly guitars and a hepped up rhythm section.
Stream Wind House below, and then check out details on The Tropics’ upcoming SF show, an October 24 stop at Rickshaw Stop supporting Allo Darlin’ that doubles as their record release party.
