Thee Oh Sees are not breaking up, just changing shape. And although John Dwyer just released his solo album as Damaged Bug and is playing Coachwhips reunion shows this month, his main band already has a new album called Drop coming out in April. We heard the riff-powered rager “Penetrating Eye” last month, and now a second song called “The Lens” is out in the world. It’s a pretty little orchestral psych ballad straight out of the Zombies playbook, which means it’s miles away from the last song in terms of mood. Hear it below.
Drop is out 4/19 (Record Store Day) on Castle Face. With all this visual language in Dwyer’s song titles lately, maybe Thee Oh really does See.
