While most songs on We Are Imaginary’s latest album, Death To Romanticism have found new footing in the noisier, more left-field spectrum of indie-pop, “A Good Kind of Sad” remains stuck in the past. Which is not to say it’s a bad thing. Jangly guitar lines flourish along a serving of minimal synths, but the perfect pairing of melodic instincts and strong, catchy chorus echo the best moments of One Dreamy Indeterminate Hum, their debut EP released under Lilystars Records. That being said, it’s refreshing to see We Are Imaginary revisit some of the tricks that worked in their formative years and apply it to their new material with the same level of curiosity, yet different perspective.
