There’s room in every summer canon for a lo-fi hit or two. Candidates looking to fill those 2012 spots, however, have their work cut out for them, since Trails and Ways are already miles ahead of the competition with their latest single, “Nunca.” The Oakland outfit just released a breezy video for the track that strings together found footage featuring graffiti artists, skateboarders, dancers and more doing their thing on the streets of Sao Paolo, Brazil. Perfect visuals for “bossa nova dream pop” if I’ve ever seen any.
“Nunca” is part of Trails and Ways’ double single release, Trilingual. You can download the track along with its counterpart, “Tereza,” at their BandCamp.
