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, selected by Midday Show host Cheryl Waters, is “Lovers” by Seattle's Anomie Belle from her 2016 album, Flux, on Diving Bell Recording Company.Anomie Belle - Lovers (MP3)Writing songs about love is one pop music's greatest traditions, and yet Anomie Belle’s “Lovers” is anything but traditional. From glitched out electronics to alternatively airy and powerful vocals, the track is an exhibition in tension and release. As the song weaves its way through its own smoldering sections, Belle offers endless twists and varieties to the pulsating rhythm, creating an experience as cyclical as nature itself. The biggest accomplishment of “Lovers” lies not within its lofty production, but within the tactile sensuality every digitized note emboldens.

Catch Anomie Belle on November 16th at The Neptune opening for The Posies, and follow the Northwest artist’s website and facebook for more news and show announcements. Plus, check out the hypnotizing video for “Lovers” here:
