As one of the most talked-about bands this year on Hype Machine, and with recent support slots for the likes of War on Drugs and Vampire Weekend, Few Bits share this sophomore album with a fanbase growing well beyond their Belgian roots. Led by vocalist/guitarist Karolien Van Ransbeeck, they craft a kind of dream pop fixed in reality; autobiographical songs shaped by "shimmering guitar layers and churning grooves," says Stereogum. The record explores the space between vulnerability and strength—two qualities, notes Karolien, embodied in the photo chosen for its cover.
