Austin quartet Speak have been getting rave reviews for their earliest of efforts and the best new track, “Gates,” is sure to continue that.

Speak occupies the space between synth power pop and indie rock. While there’s certainly an alt slant to their work, Speak uses the synth as just one part of a complicated song structure, whereas most of their peers use it as a sort of white noise to drench the whole song with. There’s nothing wrong with either approach, but whatever Speak is doing, they need to keep on doing it, because “Gates” is another dynamite track. The wonderfully fluctuating vocals take center stage on this cut. Lead singer Troupe Gammage (yes, that’s actually his name) displays a falsetto that sounds like a crisper, purer version of Michael Angelakos of Passion Pit. The hook here is beyond infectious and much to your pleasure will likely be stuck in your head till the end of the week.
