The first track, "Death v. Decline," is musically jaunty, providing an instantly appealing backdrop for Andy Rosenstein's smooth, clear vocals and clever lyrics. Like Broken by Design's intro track "Dead Letter," it's got immediate hooks and a classic pop sound. The second song, "Pains for the Young," has a similarly breezy vibe with a bit more of a subtle approach. Both are fit for repeated listens. Check them out for yourself below, and catch Clip Art live on Tuesday, May 8th when they play Lincoln Hall with The Hudson Branch and The Belfry Hollers (8 p.m., 18 and over, $10. Tickets here).
