You know that sensation that comes around every fall? The one where you can see the end of the year straight ahead and you start to wonder, What did I not accomplish that I promised myself I would? That's what listening to "Turtledoves," the new single from Brooklyn five-piece Gingerlys, feels like. "Watching the passing time/ Everything is frozen," sings vocalist Jackie Mendoza, her voice soaring over a melodic dream-rock soundscape.

Gingerlys — whose forthcoming self-titled sophomore album is being released on D.C.'s Babe City Records and San Diego's Topshelf Records — explained to The FADER via email that "Turtledoves" is about "the struggle of wanting to realize one's creative dreams at the expense of living a traditionally comfortable life — a struggle that we all became familiar with over the four years it took to finish this song." Worth the wait.

Gingerlys is out November 17 on Topshelf and Babe City Records.
