Badlands - Sleeping Beauty
If you had to predict a song that could wind up on the soundtrack of a future Sofia Coppola film, this would at least be on a top 10 list. Badlands seem to blur the lines between dreamy, wall of sound type ballads, Jesus and Mary Chain ambiance and slowcore indie-pop, popularized by bands like Beach House. Washed with a romantic sheen, this track is packed with perfect mood-setting melodies. Light a couple candles, uncork that bottle of Chianti, and let Badlands unwind in your ear.
