Brooklyn duo Color War have an intriguingly dark sound, as represented on this new song from their forthcoming debut LP, It Could Only Be This Way. The menacingly glimmering synth work that lies below Lindsay Mound's cresting vocals are reminiscent of the framework of Swedish fitted-hat-loving electro-pop outfit Kate Boy's "Northern Lights", which is a very good thing. It Could Only Be This Way should be coming out this fall via Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
