Viet Cong – “Silhouettes”

Later this month, Viet Cong, the Calgary postpunk four-piece that features two former members of Women, will release their self-titled full-length debut, an absolute ass-kicker of an album. We’ve already posted the oblique but anthemic first single “Continental Shelf,” and now the band has shared another song called “Silhouettes.” The track burns and scrapes like the stuff on the band’s 2014 EP Cassette, but it has a new sort of majesty to it. “Silhouettes” has plenty in common with that first Factory Records wave of postpunk, and it also lurches and seethes like late-’90s math-rock. Listen to it below; you’ll be happy you did.

Viet Cong is out 1/20 on Jagjaguwar (and Flemish Eye in Canada).
