It is difficult not to be intrigued by the aesthetic Indian dream pop duo Parekh and Singh. You can see them in their Wes-Anderson-esque music videos wearing colorful matching suits. Nischay Parekh and Jivraj Singh stare blankly into the distance, effortlessly playing their catchy, uplifting music.

Even if you were unable to see their videos, you can still get those vibes from the music that Parekh and Singh play. Their sound is wonderfully simple; acoustic guitar, percussion, and the occasional synth back Parekh’s gentle voice. Their sound is similar to a stripped-down Death Cab for Cutie, but more positive (hope that description was convoluted enough for you).

“Summer Skin” is a song about loss and longing, and you can hear it in Parekh’s voice. It’s about saying goodbye to a loved one and the “momentariness of life.” In other words, it’s super sad. He also sings the perplexing statement “Time is a waste of life.” I’m still trying to wrap my head around that, I just need to stop crying first.

If you need an uplifting song for afterward, you can listen to the duo’s best-known track, “I Love You Baby, I Love You Doll.” It’s lovely enough to help cleanse your palette of the blues from the other track.

Parekh and Singh’s second LP, Science City, is due to arrive on April 29.
