Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part of our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. Today’s song, featured on the Afternoon Show with Kevin Cole, is "Reeling Out" by Solvents from their 2015 self-released album, Modern Dystopia.

Solvents - Reeling Out (MP3)

Port Townsend’s Solvents have been one of Northwest's best kept secrets for the past half-decade, but all that should change with the release of Modern Dystopia. A wash with the truly beautiful and intelligent vocals from frontman Jarrod Paul Bramson and pitch-perfect harmonies from violin/vocalist Emily Madden; these multi talented marvels make sure each element contributes a sense of melancholy and wistfulness that many established bands struggle to include. With its deliberate pacing and expert crescendos, “Reeling Out” is one of the catchiest well-written rock songs to hit the KEXP airwaves this year. Dripping in lo-fi atmospherics and with hooks this good, today's featured song proves that this duo can lay down some poppy frenetic folk jams with the best of them.

Catch Solvents next month at Make.Shift Project in Bellingham on May 1st, at Anacortes Music Channel on May 2nd, and in Ballard at Conor Byrne on June 4th. Keep up to date with the two on their Facebook and Bandcamp pages and check them out performing "Careless Step" in their living room in Port Townsend:
