Lady Bones – “Botch” (Stereogum Premiere)

To call Lady Bones a rock band would be a gross oversimplification. The Boston three-piece fuses the bleakness of post-punk with the raw energy of grunge but ties it all together with a melodic sensibility that’s rare amongst bands who achieve this level of gloriously squalid noise. “Botch,” the new single from their debut full-length, Dying, is a case-in-point. The song seems to grow out of the ground like a weed towards the sun, goaded along by Sean Gilston’s pained, gritty vocals. All of the sudden, the guitars start to grind against thrashing drums, pushed to the point of near-collapse. It’s a rabid hound of a tune, and you can hear it below.

Dying is out June 30 via Midnight Werewolf.
