Australian indie pop trio New Navy released a new single “Pelican” four days ago. The single seems to have a more poppy, upbeat twist to it. Much like the bands older music like “Tapioca” and “Zimbabwe”, rather than their more recent relaxed, calming sound. Pelican’s smooth composure and catchy vocals remind me vividly of SPEAK. The Lyrics make me smile because they’re rather ridiculous. The bubbly beat and maraca sounds make the song seem suitingly nautical.
Not deep and moving or a timeless masterpiece, but definitely a fun listen.
