There’s an inventiveness to music that doesn’t come from big cities. Over the years, my friend Kyle has sent me tons of great indie pop from his hometown of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, bands he’s seen in converted barns and other small, well-loved venues. Decent Lovers‘ latest song “Keep It Together” instantly reminded me of these Southern hometown bands, so I felt vindicated to learn that they hail from North Carolina as well (Asheville, specifically). “Keep It Together” is a joyful love song with group vocals recorded in someone’s house, and if that doesn’t cheer you up, well, that’s on y’all, not me. Buy it on Bandcamp or stream it below.
