My Old Kentucky Blog Video Premiere : Welcome Back Sailors  “Best Friend”

November 24th will see the release of the new LP, Tourismo, from Italian dreampop duo Welcome Back Sailors, their first in approximately three years. They chose the title of the LP because “it describes movement, curiosity, relax, and at the same time it shows what we like the most: playing our music everywhere.” The first track from the album is the nostalgic “Best Friend” full of ’80s synth touchstones. To go along with those throwback vibes, the band complete the picture with the visual for the song. Directed by Alessio Artoni, you get swept away to a skating rink love story with choreography included.

Slowly breathing life in to a day that simmer and shines under the weight of itself, ‘Best Friend‘ acts as something of a calming entry in to the new long-player from Italian dreampop duo Welcome Back Sailors. ‘Tourismo‘ is released towards the latter stages of November, via the ever-impressive We Were Never Being Boring, but don’t let its Autumnal situation obscure the fact that this is the alluring sound of Summer in all its finery.
Here, on a brand new track we’re premiering below, it takes a little while for the bands natural radiance to find it’s feet; the opening minute or so is quietly restrained, a hushed glow of an intro that is suddenly brought to the life by a subtle percussive beat and a slow-bleed of synths that shape the track towards its floral, sumptuous finale. Welcome back, indeed.
