Thee Oh Sees – “Drop” (Stereogum Premiere)
The two songs we’ve heard from Thee Oh Sees’ forthcoming Drop spanned a vast aesthetic distance; “Penetrating Eye” was a gnarly unhinged riff monster, while “The Lens” was a subdued and pretty psych ballad. “Drop,” the album’s title track, splits the difference, incorporating pop sensibilities and razor-sharp George Harrison guitar spasms into a hard-charging psych-punk sugar rush. Listen below.
Drop will be out 4/19 (Record Store Day) via Castle Face.
