Stream: Cymbals, “No Bad Decisions”


Cymbals’ “No Bad Decisions,” like many of their songs and finely exemplary of their whole emotional deal, combines the stiff weirdness of Talking Heads with the melodic precision of a Vampire Weekend riff. The song’s the opposite of a nervous stutter or mumble, instead balling up anxious energy and letting it out in bursts of muted guitar and clipped vocals. Which makes the refrain after the song’s seeming fade-out at 3:20 such a release, a time to stomach fear for a minute, stop pumping thoughts out as words and dance. Cymbals new album, Sideways, Sometimes, comes out April 23rd via Tough Love.
