New Grizzly Bear... to be 'Sunnier'?

I have no problems with that...

From Billboard:

Singer/guitarist Edward Droste tells the new material is sounding more optimistic and poppy than 2006's "Yellow House" (Warp).

"I think we're all in a really poppy place for sure," Droste says. "There are dark lyrics in play, and it's not like the whole album is going to be an up-tempo radio pop thing at all. We'll probably never get played on the radio, but [on] just a couple of the songs the mood is perhaps a bit sunnier than 'Yellow House.'"

He adds, "I think the orchestrations will be equally complex and intricate, but the mood is slightly more a sunny afternoon versus a fall afternoon."
