Sure Sure let their funky selves free on "Hands Up Head Down"

Art pop quartet Sure Sure first caught our attention with songs like "New Biome" and "The Expert," both of which brought a slick pop sound with an inventive stroke. A year later, the band is expanding their reach with their latest single, "Hands Up Head Down," where they let their funky selves free with a slinky groove that recalls the sumptuous prog-pop of Genesis and Steely Dan. The track benefits from these odd sonic contrivances that add to its overall playfulness, but never do they lose sight of a catchy, earworm chorus that might just place them on commercial rock radio. Even if they light the room with a breezy and easygoing disposition, their careful attention to detail on "Hands Up Head Down" proves they're intent on writing songs that are flat-out fun without undermining their own intelligence.

Sure Sure are playing The Fonda on January 28, 2018 supporting Hippo Campus.

Sure Sure play at El Cid on 5.21

Sure Sure is a quartet who works a rich seam of splindly guitars with lush string arrangements. Songs like "New Biome" and "The Expert" are unique in how they hone art pop sensibilities, with smooth melodic contours and backwoods harmonies that faintly evoke bands like Grizzly Bear and Field Music. And do I hear some bossa nova chords embedded into the mix? Their measured style is an uncommon one, and all the better for it, seeing as their first singles exhibit an attention to songcraft that is smart, inventive, and undeniably catchy.

Sure Sure are playing at El Cid this coming Saturday, May 21st. Check out their two singles below. - Juan Rodríguez
