Today we're delighted to premiere the second album by North Highlands, though it's bittersweet: the five-piece actually went on indefinite hiatus a year ago when surviving as a small Brooklyn band became increasingly difficult thanks to the gentrification of the borough - arguably an effect of indie culture's ever-widening appeal.

North Highlands never quite made it, but they should have: their 2011 debut, Wild One, is peerless dream pop - somewhere between Beach House, Electrelane and Vampire Weekend - made anew by singer Brenda Malvini's lovely hiccuping (and strangely soothing) voice. They started writing a follow-up soon after its release and recorded basic tracks in August 2013, at which point Malvini moved to Chicago and guitarist Mike Barron to LA. "So many reasons I loved Brooklyn were starting to disappear," says Malvini. "I finally realised that while I had found love in New York, I was really tired of writing about New York."

There's that phrase, "tired of New York/London/etc, tired of life", but that's always seemed like bullshit. Author Gideon Lewis-Kraus' words to people claiming to have tired of Berlin distil the truth of big city ennui more astutely: "What the word 'over' really means is that your expectations of a place, your fantasies of who you might have become there, have been confounded by the persistence of you." The sound of North Highlands' gorgeous new album is forged from that wistful defeat, the sense of promise deflated but of readying yourself for a new adventure elsewhere. Stream it below, and read a Q&A with the band.
