Acrylics Release “Sparrow Song”off Forthcoming Debut LP, Lives and Treasure, Out March 1st

“I mentioned this last week but I’m still not tired of hearing [Acrylics].” – USA Today

“Like their sonic stepcousins Stars and Headlights, this breathy, ’80s-loving boy-girl duo are not only attentive to the spoils of love, but also to its sacrifices.” – SPIN 7/10

“‘Sparrow Song’ is an ingenuous ode to Kate Bush’s spacey electronic pop.” – Pitchfork

Download “Sparrow Song” feat. Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek

Brooklyn duo Acrylics (aka Molly Shea and Jason Klauber) have released a new single, “Sparrow Song,” off their forthcoming LP, Lives and Treasure. The song feature’s Shea’s lead vocals and the celestial backing vocals of her Girl Crisis collaborator Caroline Polachek of Chairlift. Available to download on Stereogum, “Sparrow Song” is the second single off of their debut LP set for a March 1st release on Friendly Fire Recordings. Shea’s unwavering vocals make way for an ethereal experience, as the track’s balmy production sounds like a synth-driven onset to a good dream.

Acrylics spent the last two years in and out of the studio to finish Lives and Treasure. With the help of producers Patrick Wimberly (Chairlift), Matt Boynton (Gang Gang Dance, MGMT), Britt Myers (Yeasayer, Chairlift) and mastering engineer Chris Gehringer (Rihanna, Drake, Nas), the full length will follow their 2009 Terrible Records debut EP, All of the Fire.
