NYC indie band Meyru is back with a cool new single and album teaser entitled “Playing This Alone.” Dreamy guitars spin under relaxed indie vocals set to a 50s doo wop beat. Maybe it’s the unprecedented staying power of Grease, but anything with a pop chord progression, prominent bass, and a relaxed 6/8 beat (i.e. “Beauty School Dropout) automatically sounds like a classic young-love ballad.
And that’s exactly the band’s aim here, with song lyrics related to adolescent relationship woes. We love the idea and think this track really hits the mark.
