Soul Low Release a Chipper New Single, Prepare For Gloss Weekend Showcase
Ahead of next month's label showcase, the band shares a peppy little jam
It’s been less than
a year since squirrely Milwaukee indie-rockers Soul Low released their latest
album, Nosebleeds, but they’ve already got another one lined up. On June 30,
the group will release their next album Cheer Up, and apparently they’re taking
that title quite literally: The album’s first single is a peppy little jam
called “Bad Set of Moods,” and the its sunshine and Leon’s custard vibe is a notable
departure from the mercurial angst of Nosebleeds.
As bassist Sam Gehrke told the website Explain, which premiered the track this afternoon, “We wanted to pursue a darker overall theme for the record lyrically and pair that mood with really fun and energetic instrumentals."
You can stream the track below:
You’ll have a couple
of chances to check out the band before the new record comes out. They’re
playing the Arte Para Todos festival next weekend, April 28 at Frank’s Power
Plant, and they’re also headlining a show for their label Gloss Records’ annual
Gloss Weekend, which announced its lineup this week. The complete lineup for
that festival is below:
