Hear New Sound: PS I Love You's "Don't Go"

Leading up to the release of their sophomore effort Death Dreams, 2010 Breakthrough Artist recipients and reverb-friendly Canadian indie duo PS I Love You have already made our ears ring in the form of the reckless noise-pop anthem "Sentimental Dishes" and the full-throttle fuzz rock attack of "Princess Towers." Before the LP hits shelves on May 8th via Paper Bag Records however, they're dazzling stereo systems instead burning a hole through them with the album's centerpiece track "Don't Go." Everything we've heard so far from lead vocalist and guitarist Paul Saulnier and drummer Benjamin Nelson to this point has been relentlessly aggressive, but "Don't Go" is filled with glassy textures and diamond-like guitars à la early era shoegaze that showcases a "prettier" side to their sound. Sure, Saulnier's vox retains its characteristically uneven bounce amidst the gliding mid-tempo run, but Nelson's first attempt ever at backing him up provides "Don't Go" with a lush, longing stability we rarely hear from the chaotic Ontario rockers. You can stick around for PS I Love You below...
