Krill opened this year ambitiously, stuffing an absurd meta-concept album into the brief EP Steve Hears Pile In Malden And Bursts Into Tears. Now they team with Ovlov, LVL UP, and Radiator Hospital for one very exciting 7″ single. Rather than sticking to any verse/chorus structure, Krill’s song takes the form of one continuously twisting and turning string of melodies and hooks. Meanwhile lead singer Jonah Furman recites both sides of a conversation that begins with a misunderstanding and grows into something somber. It’s the sound of what was already one of the best new bands of last year growing even better. Listen.
The split is due 10/14 via Double Double Whammy/ Exploding In Sound. Pre-order it here.
