So Totally moves from fuzzy pop to overdriven rock on “Pluto”
Philly indie four-piece So Totally has been a fixture on the DIY scene for the past couple years, and next month will release its full-length debut, in the shape of…
The nine-track record, out May 3rd, was produced by the band, with Chance Halter of Harmony Woods and Hank Byerly of Americanadian contributing some rhythm section engineering work, and Shannen Moser collaborator Eric Muth mastering the project.
Lead single “Pluto” hit the internet this week (shoutout to our friends at The Deli for alerting us) and it opens on the four-piece band navigating twinkling indie pop tones that are drifting, dreamlike, and inviting…but it keeps the listener on their toes. One minute in, the song has shifted from dreamlike pop to heavy shoegaze, and as we cross the two-minute mark, we’ve moved further into the cathartic conclusion of airy dissonance in a cool Sonic Youth / Spirit of the Beehive kind of way.
Listen below. So Totally does not have any Philly gigs announced at present, but we imagine a record release party of some sort is in the cards, so keep tabs on their Facebook page for more on that.
