Long Neck – “Backseat”

Last month, Long Neck announced that they were launching a crowdfunding campaign for their sophomore album, World’s Strongest Dog, and shared a new song, “Campfire.” The one-time Band To Watch reached their goal extraordinarily quick — in, like, less than a day — and now they’re proceeding to rollout their album on more traditional terms with another single, “Backseat.”

It’s a rolling song with skittering drums about the moment when you find out that life goes on without you, told from the backseat of a car as you’re gliding through a world out of your control. “When did you first realize everything had a limited timeline?” Lily Mastrodimos sings in the chorus, answering herself: “In the backseat, age four or five/ Tears on the fabric and stinging my eyes.”

Listen below.

World’s Strongest Dog is out 4/10. You can still pre-order it through Indiegogo here and there is now also a Bandcamp pre-order.
