Playing the three spot while only one member short of having a starting-five, Small Forward are a four-piece from Los Angeles, California. The project was initially a partnership that started between songwriters Michael Stevenson and Rounak Maiti, with members Campbell Scott and Nick Waldram later rounding out the line-up. Following up their mini-record Affections, the band is teasing their next effort with a few singles released late last year and in the new year.

Tearjerker is a track that is orbited by cool hooks and scintillating instrumentation. The band reaches an apex of mellow with their stream of quilted guitar work. The velvety cool melody hits with a wash of misty iridescence, galvanizing the sublime feeling that surges throughout the track.
