All the way from Latvia, Lake Notion surprised us with this jangly energy-bomb they’ve titled “It’s Complicated, Always.” Reminiscent of neo-emo luminaries like Pinegrove, “Always” pairs big guitar sounds with emotional, but melodic vocals. Mid-song, the trio (!) surprises you with a nimble, mathy section, full of start-stop rhythms and intense, bombastic energy. Through and through, this one is an epic listen that continues to keeps you guessing, even as the huge “ah-ahhhh” vocals bring the song to a perfect close.
