New York City post-punk outfit Bush Tetras emerged on the scene in 1979, crafting paranoid grooves that occasionally flirted with a pop-centric mainstream. Though their lineup has shifted throughout the years, the wailing energy and erratic rock power remain present on their first new song in over a decade.
“Red Heavy” is the lead single from their upcoming EP, Take The Fall. The band’s signature apathetic angst drips from vocalist and co-founder Cynthia Sleys’ blunt expression, matched by a sliding electric guitar. This sonic demeanor gives an apt introduction to the new EP, which is said to be a tense recognition of passing time and a disavowal of our current reality. Listen to “Red Heavy” below.
