Artist: Welcome Center
Song: Losers
EP: Talk Talk Talk

Welcome Center says of the inspiration of this disco tinged indie-rock track:  “I was reading Cherry by Nico Walker & Norweigan Wood by Haruki Murakami at the time, so I crafted this story about two forlorn lovers living on the edge of society, longing for a purity they never had. It’s a bittersweet, coming-of-age tale about two addicts. I don’t think that’s immediately obvious thanks to the upbeat music– which stands in stark contrast to the lyrics.”

This indie-rock song is incredibly artful. The repetition and simplicity in the melody is entrancing, while details of guitar and piano charm.
