Track Of The Day :: Egoism - What Are We Doing?
Words: Sam Geary
Sydney dreampop duo EGOISM have pulled another gem out of the bag with their second single of the year, 'What Are We Doing?'
Opening on echoing vocals and reverb, 'What Are We Doing?' plays magically across three ear-caressing minutes, with Scout Eastment and Olive Rush combining their dual vocals with an array of dream-pop/shoegaze-esque melodies.
"This song is literally about making music with each other; but really it’s about letting out all the little worries you keep to yourself, and then taking a deep breath and realising ‘you and I, we don’t know what the fuck we’re doing with this’," says Olive.
We don't know either, but we know a good song when we hear it.
