Open Smile’, a new single by the Brooklyn indie-funk trio Pear Moth, is out now and available on all streaming platforms. An intricately layered track built around a thumping four-on-the-floor groove, “Open Smile” pays respects to the guitar-driven narcotic haze of My Bloody Valentine while remaining faithful to the minimalist funk ethos of Dirty Mind-era Prince. This unlikely convergence of sonic influences mirrors the Freudian conflict expressed in the song’s lyrics: the need for honest self-reflection vs. the outward pressure to keep up appearances at whatever cost. If you’re in the market for a summer jam that doesn’t skimp on instrumental muscle or emotional heft, look no further than this sagely crafted sophomore release.
