Protomartyr Sign to Domino for New LP
I don’t think there’s a single person that dislikes Protomartyr, and I think this new single is going to continue that run. They’ve announced they’re signing to Domino to release Relatives in Descent, and this video/track is filled with these miniature movements that are sure to captivate. At first, the band sounds like a more brooding National, almost more sinister, then a slight pop interlude with strumming guitar and a blast into the chorus…they go back, but then comes the next movement with the mellow release of the repeated lines “she’s just trying to reach you.” They emphatically bang to a close, go soft, then bang back out only to quietly fade away with a light string. Look for the new album on September 29th.
