we first became familiar with LA band sir sly when they co-headlined echo park rising last summer. since then, these LA natives have gone on to tour with the 1975 and see their first single, “gold,” featured in a cadillac commercial. while classified as indie pop, don’t expect any cutesy, throwback references — their sound is much more heavily influenced by hip-hop, which naturally we can’t help but love.
upon first listen to their debut album, you haunt me, released last week, it’s clear these guys are going to blow up over the course of the next year. while it’s difficult to pick a favorite track from an album packed with songs that could all be individual hits, we’re particularly feeling the bitter little kiss-off/fuck-off-forever jam “found you out.” take a listen below, and if you’re an LA resident, check out their hometown show at the el rey next monday, september 29th.
