Pile – “#2 Hit Single” (Stereogum Premiere)
Boston quartet Pile plays jagged, wildly energetic noise-punk that seems to have sprung from the same family tree as Metz and Future Of The Left. “#2 Hit Single,” from Pile’s upcoming LP You’re Better Than This, is one of those rock songs performed with the aggression of a metal song — that is, it conks you across the face at the start and never lets up from there, jerking and jabbing with such a violence that you might not notice the sly melodic outbursts that occasionally blast off amidst the mayhem. Hear it below.
You’re Better Than This is out 3/3 on Exploding In Sound.
