Song of the Day: 'The Dead Leaves (Danse Macabre Midnight)' by Modern Rivals

Song of the Day: 'The Dead Leaves (Danse Macabre Midnight)' by Modern Rivals

The rather baroque title "The Dead Leaves (Danse Macabre Midnight)" belies the easy-going melody and fleet guitar and keyboard figures that hone the song's hook. As it all builds to a fuzzy collision, it's clear Modern Rivals have more than just bookish dream pop on their minds.

From "Cemetery Dares," out April 22, 2014.
