New Irving Track - "Jen, Nothing Matters To Me"

Los Angeles indie poppers Irving are releasing their new album Death in the Garden, Blood on the Flowers April 4th on Eenie Meenie Records. The album was produced by the wonderful Mr. Phil Ek(The Shins, Modest Mouse) among a handful of other great producers. But, it's not all about production, and this new song proves that Irving have got the talent to back up such great production.

[MP3]: Irving :: Jen, Nothing Matters To Me
This song has got a definite 80's pop feel to it, and I think it's got something to do with those synths in the chorus. As soon as the first fifteen seconds pass I already feel like I'm lost in some timewarp where The Cure has decided to adopt recent indie pop tactics. The sharp ringing guitars and synths paired with crooning of "Jen, nothing matters to me" in the chorus is where Irving shine. It's that chorus that's going to make this song stick around for a while.

Irving will be performing at SXSW on March 13th @ the Eenie Meenie SXSW showcase w/ Lookout! Records and after that they hit the road with Voxtrot for the better part of April in support of the new album. More dates and info here.
