Leftover Cuties is a self-described noir-pop band from Los Angeles. The quartet released its second LP, The Spark & The Fire, last month, and The A.V. Club has the latest single exclusively right here. “Once Again” is a piano-driven tune that’s as catchy as it is bitter. There’s something about the so-sweetly-sung and sad lyrics combined with up-tempo horns and major cords that really sticks.
Leftover Cuties have also been on tour this summer to promote The Spark & The Fire, and there are still some chances to catch them live. A full list of dates is below the track.
