In early November, Cloud Nothings released the first single from their forthcoming, Steve Albini-produced Attack On Memory, a track that showcased a rougher, more unhinged sound. Today they posted their second single, “Stay Useless,” a quick-hit garage jam brimming with hooks that recalls some of the band’s earliest work. Baldi explains the track to Rolling Stone:
‘Stay Nothing’ [sic] was my attempt at making a catchy pop song that was better than any other pop song I’ve written. I’m trying to take Cloud Nothings to different areas, songwriting-wise, so I figured I should try and finish off the ‘poppy’ songs with a bang.
