"In Cairo" by The Ross Sea Party

RSP_Noho_06Silver Lake‘s The Ross Sea Party have been busy promoting their stellar debut LP Hotel Pool. The album’s second single “In Cairo” is a riveting jive with an engaging glockenspiel intro that is a signature sound to the album (thanks to keyboardist Jacquelyn Thropay):

We asked frontman Brady Erickson for the story behind the song and he replied:

“It’s about the way that music, dancing, and body language transcend spoken language. I’ve done quite a bit of traveling and people often ask, ‘How do you deal with the language barrier?’ It’s funny though; even way out there in Turkmenistan or Syria where there’s not much English to be found, communication is always incredibly easy. Without the conventions of language sometimes you even forge a connection with people that’s more immediate and intuitive. I however, have never been to Cairo. Because of that, I think there’s a certain romance to it that actually made it easier to write about. Plus it’s a subtle nod to The Cure, one of my all time favorites.”

And to prove their evoking show performances, here’s a live video of the song filmed at the Echo Country Outpost by Sarah Fuller:

Free Bike Valet and Moheak Radio are co-presenting The Ross Sea Party‘s next March residency show at Harvard & Stone this Tuesday along with Kid Cadaver, The Lexingtons and John Graney (from The Californian).
