Whirr – “Ease” (Stereogum Premiere)

Shoegaze greats Whirr and Nothing share a member in Nick Bassett, and the two bands have a split 12″ coming out this month. We’ve already shared one of Nothing’s songs from the project, “July The Fourth.” Now here’s one from Whirr, a hard-charging celestial cut called “Ease.” It’s Whirr at their poppiest — more of an uptempo Isn’t Anything rocker than a gloomy Loveless dirge a la “Mumble” — and it turns out this band does poppy as well as they do dark and despairing. Hear “Ease” below.

The Whirr/Nothing split is out 11/17 on Run For Cover. Pre-order it here.
