“2 flares,” a fresh-off-the-presses single from New Zealand indie pop band Nomad, is charged up with a certain undeniable zest crossbred with the radio-friendly hooks of Bastille with the raw emotion of The National.

The song begins by giving off the feel of a somber piano ballad. Then, in a flash, it blossoms into a fast-paced tune that harnesses an arena-ready energy. If you needed an exhibit of this band’s dexterity as musicians, look no further than “2 flares,” found below.
