STREET CHANT released a brand new single today via Arch Hill’s bandcamp page – the third single from their forthcoming sophomore album. I was/am still a huge fan of Means and am very excited by the prospect of a new album especially since al three singles (back in May they released their double-A Side single Frail Girls/Salad Daze)
Sink, as Arch Hill puts it is ‘snarky and playful’ as it tells “tales of debaucherous, Auckland groundhog nights out.” – it’s power-pop genius with undeniable hooks that would turn amputee pirates bright green in jealousy. It’s a summer lil’ fucker of a song. It’s just rully good. (But actually it is).
The b-side is a non-album track “recorded some time ago in a variety of locations…it might be a bit fuzzed up but don’t worry, Street Chant aren’t going all stoner rock on you.” I freaking love it. Stoner-spacey-awesome.
Arch Hill / Street Chant explain that Sink will come with two videos: “The first is a Karaoke version – so you can all lean the words. The second, which will be released in a couple of weeks, features the karaoke version – but isn’t actually the karaoke version…if that makes any sense.”
For a limited time the single and b-side is available to download as “pay as you like” via Bandcamp / stream em here
