Fol Chen – “200 Words” (Stereogum Premiere)

The experimental Los Angels pop band Fol Chen appear to be taking a big step toward actual pop on their new album The False Alarms, which is coming in a couple of months. The band has added the full-time vocalist Sinosa Loa, and the first single “200 Words” uses her voice to great effect. It’s a chilly, stop-starting six-minute electro fantasia with an insinuating vocal hook. Listen to it and check out the album’s tracklist and the band’s tour dates below.
