Solids – “Wait It Out” (Stereogum Premiere)

James Rettig | March 29, 2016 - 11:12 am

It’s satisfying as hell to hear a band click into place after a promising debut and some grueling time spent on the road. Solids released their first album, Blame Confusion, back in 2014, and followed that up with over 200 shows opening for the likes of Pity Sex, Makthaverskan, Nothing, and PUP. On Else, the duo — recently expanded to a trio — only gets more ambitious and expansive. Lead single “Blank Stare,” which the band shared earlier this month, saw the band at their most scuzzy and sour; “Wait It Out” is more of a slow-burn, digging into a groove and refusing to let go. Listen below.
