Although beginning humbly as a two-piece recording in a Long Beach attic, New York’s Small
Black signed to the esteemed Jagjaguwar shortly after the release of their critically acclaimed
debut EP. Evoking a similar longing for care-free, sun-soaked days as many chillwave artists,
Small Black are honoured for their well-produced synth-pop hooks combined with a glorious
celebration of melancholic nostalgia, aurally resisting the lo-fi nature of the chillwave tag.
Their second album Limits of Desire, released in May, discusses lyrically and sonically the
tribulations of love in the post-modern era.
