The New York-via-Boston indie rock band Hooray For Earth broke up last year, and now former frontman Noel Heroux has gone solo, taking on the name Mass Gothic. Early next year, Sub Pop will release Mass Gothic’s self-titled debut, entirely written and recorded by Heroux, getting help from Zambri’s Jessica Zambri. Vulture just debuted Mass Gothic’s first single “Nice Night,” a clanging, sweeping, cathartic song about depression that sounds like it was informed by the music David Bowie made during his Berlin period. Listen to the song below.
Mass Gothic is out 2/5 on Sub Pop.
