Kal Marks – “Adventure”

Boston trio Kal Marks are following up 2016’s Life Is Alright, Everybody Dies with a new album called Universal Care early next year. The shift in sentiment from those titles hints at the worldview development the band has undergone in the time between albums, and new single “Adventure” is just as blistering as anything Kal Marks has done, but it’s also contemplative and painfully hopeful. “Still, I’d want to see you tonight/ And I can’t promise you an answer/ All I know is it’s worth the adventure,” Carl Shane sings in his distinctive yowl, and as the band gradually build the framework for the song’s thrashing conclusion, you can’t help but be swept up in their disorientation too. Listen below.
