Hey, Remember Nostalgia: “Rainbow Wrists”
Hey, remember when underground music wasn’t instantly at your fingertips, ready to be downloaded, ID3-tagged, sideloaded, consumed, and maybe forgotten? Nah, didn’t think so.
First listen alert! We’ve got a hot one today. “Rainbow Wrists” by Hey, Remember Nostalgia—a local outfit comprised of the instrumental band Paragraphs, plus two others—is a flurry of poppy folktronica with a rock backbeat, altogether reminiscent of early Octopus Project or a cutesier Cocteau Twins. The group introduced themselves to the world by releasing a pair of teaser demos (stream “A Significant Fine Cowboy” here). Before you know it they’ll be tearing up a seedy bar or 40,000-capacity arena near you.
