If you’re not familiar with Helicopters, their sound falls somewhere between Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie. You may have seen the trio back in 2007 - they played the first time slot at Lollapalooza after making finalist in Last Band Standing, the festival’s battle of the bands contest. Slow Leak at the Seam will be the act’s third full-length, and from the sound of its first single, “True to My Words,” which was released last week, it seems they’re sticking with the same type of lush layers and warm melodies that worked for them on their last album, Sizing Up the Distance. But we’ll just have to wait and see as they release more tracks in the weeks ahead. Take a listen to today’s track, "Enough," and if you like what you hear, check them out when they play the Subterranean July 14 and donate a few dollars to those oil-covered critters in the gulf.
Helicopters play Wednesday, July 14 at Subterranean, 2011 North Ave, 8 p.m., $8, 21+
