The UMBRELLAS – ” Write it in the Sky “

Posted: June 5, 2022 in MUSIC

The San Francisco indiepop band stays strong with this terrifically fuzzy new single, The Umbrellas follow up last years’ great debut album with what might be their most immediate jangle pop earworm yet. Drenched in layers of fuzz, “Write it in the Sky” is like The Pains of Being Pure at Heart covering The Pastels, or maybe the other way around.

Bursting out of the SF Bay Area’s fertile indie scene, The Umbrellas come correct with a sound that fits snugly into a long line of classic pop, from Orange Juice and The Pastels to Comet Gain, Veronica Falls and Belle & Sebastian. Following up their *super* well-received 2021 debut album The Umbrellas are back with “Write It In The Sky,” an instant-classic that simply demanded to be pressed onto a 7″ single. Clocking in at just under 3 minutes, “Write It In The Sky” is a thrilling pop rush full of fuzz, melody and excitement that will sit easily next to singles by the likes of Talulah Gosh, Shop Assistants and the Field Mice It’s really that good – a sure thing to enter the cannon of perennial indie pop floor-fillers.

This one sports a giant chorus, and the verses are no less catchy. This is the A-side to a new 7″ that’s out June 24th on Slumberland Records and the video is a classic bit of 8mm sunshine.
