This Is Our Jam Premieres: Silver Swans, “Always Something”

Sure, we like music that's fun, exciting, and danceable, but sometimes we want chill out to something that's the complete opposite. The new video for "Always Something," from San Francisco synth-pop duo Silver Swans' recent Forever LP, is exactly that: a big, beautiful bummer.
As vocalist Ann Yu carefully navigates the rocky California coast, her lyrics drift overhead: "Why would they lie for fun?" her ghostly voice sings. This is definitely not the cure to your S.A.D.s, so go ahead and purchase that happy light you've had in your Amazon checkout list since November. It's time.
