Song Of The Day: A Certain Smile, “Original Replacement”

We were greatly impressed by Fits & Starts, the debut album from Portland indie-poppers A Certain Smile, and they’ve just released a wonderful teaser of a seven-inch single ahead of their forthcoming sophomore album. Bae, a three-song EP, contains two rockers on the A-side, but it’s “Original Replacement,” the flip side, that has us all excited. Instead of the poppy rockers, they slow things down a bit, and though they wear their Sarah Records influence on their sleeves here, I’m also reminded of the equally fantastic The Ocean Blue. But it doesn’t matter who they sound like, because they sound absolutely fantastic here. New album? Bring it on, please.
