Preoccupations – “Espionage”

The band now known as Preoccupations have just announced their sophomore album, New Material. The follow-up to their 2016 self-titled will be out on 3/23. “It’s an ode to depression,” the band’s Matt Flegel says in a press release. “To depression and self-sabotage, and looking inward at yourself with extreme hatred.” The album’s first single is the shifty and moody “Espionage,” and you can listen to it and get all the LP details below.

01 “Espionage”
02 “Decompose”
