Back in July, I caught a set by Brooklyn-based rockers Gingerlys at Secret Project Robot that immediately put them on my radar for future releases. Lo and behold, the band is now gearing up to release a debut, self-titled full-length with dreamy, whirring lead single, “Turtledoves,” offering an exciting taste of what’s to come.
The sweeping dream-pop cut finds Gingerlys locking in on a river of riveting rhythms as sparkling guitars and keys set up Jackie Mendoza’s wistful vocals.
The band shares:
“‘Turtledoves’ is about “the struggle of wanting to realize one’s creative dreams at the expense of living a traditionally comfortable life — a struggle that we all became familiar with over the four years it took to finish this song.”
