New Song: Body Parts, ‘Perfect Water’

Body Parts

Body Parts serve up a tasty new track, “Perfect Water.”

Leave it to a band from L.A. to write a song called “Perfect Water.” The track’s half of a new single from Body Parts, an Echo Park quartet led by frontman Ryder Bach. “Perfect Water” pours out like a farm-to-table cocktail, one part Local Natives rhythmic gymnastics, one part Dirty Projectors vocal athleticism, and a slice of Talking Heads grooviness — making for a full glass of intoxicating indie rock. Even better: Refills won’t wreak havoc on your credit card debt.

Listen to Body Parts’ “Perfect Water” after the jump.

The band’s huge harmonies soar like a fighter-jet formation, cruising over click-clacking drums and fruit-flavored synths to drop lines such as “I feel like touching your mind to your body!” It’s metaphysical business from a band that also wants us to dance. The track, alongside A-side “Rest While You Sleep,” is out today on New Professor. It’s the first music from the group since debut set On Purpose, an album Bach recorded mostly solo in a Long Island basement. Sounds like the West Coast’s been treating them well — must be something in the water. Or maybe the farmers’ market? Drink up below.
