The new track "Common Sentiments", from their upcoming album White Lighter out next year, premiered today over at MTVHive and will enjoy a limited edition vinyl run and features the same absolutely engrossing style of orchestra folk pop that the Portland outfit are known for. And yet, excitingly enough, it's not just a rehashing of what the band do oh so well. There's new ideas at work here: From Kyle Morton's solo a cappella opening to the grooving, sauntering start-stop arrangements.
It's almost impossible to fathom but Typhoon are getting better with time and White Lighter is already in the running for one of my most anticipated albums of 2013 based on this first single alone. And it's not hard to see why, "Common Sentiments" is a real scorcher, after my own heart with each musical phrase and ornament.
There's just no stopping Portland's folk orchestra and thank heavens for that because I wouldn't want it any other way. Typhoon's upcoming album White Lighter will be out next year at a yet undisclosed release date.
