Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.: “Morning Thought”

It’s exciting news that Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. — a band with one of the goofiest names and also the heaviest buzz — are finally going to be releasing a full-length album. The Detroit duo has criss-crossed genres at times, but are best at making super-melodic, very endearing electronic pop. If “Morning Thought”, the first single from It’s A Corporate World (due June 7 on Quite Scientific Records), is any indication, the band figures to keep getting much-deserved praise.

“Morning Thought” layers electric guitars on top of synths and vocal samples, and moves along on a steady drumbeat until, for the final third of the song, there are some delightful background harmonies that jump into the mix. It’s a really strong track that’s certainly worth repeated listens. Lyrically, it seems to be about a partnership where one person overthinks every decision while the other just does, man. Give a listen.

Also, check out this incredible clip for “Nothing But Our Love”, from the pair’s Horse Power EP, which is the coolest music video I’ve seen in a very long time.
