The Juliets: “Sweetheart”

Whether they are present just to add an interesting flourish, or they dominate a song, I am such a sucker for well-constructed string arrangements. And it just so happens that, in addition to their common indie-rock instrumentation — guitars, drums, subtle lead vocals and ooh-ahh backing ones — The Juliets have lush, wonderful strings that swell and breathe in my ears.

“Sweetheart” begins with a short instrumental blitz, which Kaylan Mitchell and Sarah Myers add the most lovely touches to. And then there’s a steady violin melody that carries throughout the chorus of “Sweetheart, sweetheart…” and so on, on this crisp, catchy tune.

The Juliets are from Detroit, and their entire self-titled album is available on their bandcamp page. Listen to and grab “Sweetheart”  — and also the equally strong “The Letter” — below.
