New Music: Out Go the Lights – ‘Pericles’

Out Go the Lights - PericlesTo call “Pericles” the best song named after a Greek statesman either showcases a sad deficit in Classical-minded indie rock or means I’ve somehow never heard theĀ Mimsies classic “Themistocles.” So let’s just call “Pericles” one of the most thrilling indie rock songs of the year, an utterly enthusiastic guitar effort that’s mostly Harlem Shakes, maybe a little bit Hold Steady and entirely worth your time.
