The Body – “Can Carry No Weight”

The Body – “Can Carry No Weight”

Earlier this year, the Rhode Island-bred noise duo the Body announced that they would be releasing a new album, I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longer, in May, their proper follow-up to 2016’s No One Deserves Happiness. We’ve heard one track from it already, the dingy “Nothing Stirs,” and today the group is sharing another one, “Can Carry No Weight.” Like the first single, it features towering vocals from Kristin Hayter (whose band, Lingua Ignota, they’re going on tour with), and this time those vocals are placed against a pulsating, ashen backdrop. Listen to it below.
