As promised, Holy Ghost! have released their first new original track since 2013’s Dynamics. The Brooklyn duo’s single is officially released tomorrow, but they debuted “Crime Cutz” today on Zane Lowe’s Beats1 show. It’s the title track to an upcoming new EP of the same name that’ll be out in April. Listen below.
Here’s what the band’s Nick Millhiser had to say about the song in a press release:
Coming out of recording and then subsequently playing/touring the last record, we didn’t have a clear game plan for new music other than a broad goal of trying to do stuff that was instantly rhythmically gratifying. As a drummer, I get parts that I find to be rhythmically catchy stuck in my head all the time. The drums on “Very Ape” by Nirvana or the confusing synth hook on ABBAs “Gimme Gimme Gimme” or the weird angular interplay between synths and guitar on “I Feel Your Love Coming On” by Chic. So this was an attempt to do something that was sort of rhythm ear candy. Simple. Angular. Funky. Physical. Fun.
The Crime Cutz EP is out 4/29 via DFA.
