Earring – “Black Chalk” (Stereogum Premiere)

Earring - "Black Chalk" (Stereogum Premiere)

Earring play a narcotized variation of rock by slowing down to a crawl and submerging their pop-hooks in reverberated muck. After releasing their debut, Nunn Ones, in 2013, the Chicago-based duo are back with a new album titled Tunn Star. Latest single “Black Chalk” steps deeper into the soporific haze that characterized their debut by lurching back and forth between chords in sludgy guitar fuzz. Earring are one half of another breakout Chicago band, Ne-Hi, but the two groups’ aesthetics are as diametrically opposed as mud and water. Listen.
