Published Jul 20, 2015While semi-recent vinyl reissues of the Jawbreaker catalogue have been more than welcome, longtime fans are no doubt aching for some new material out of the group's Blake Schwarzenbach. Thankfully, a pensive and pretty new tune has just been delivered by the singer-songwriter. You can sample his "Sanity Is Waiting" right now.
It's unclear exactly what the song is attached to, if anything, but it arrived over the weekend via Kandy Kane Records. Perhaps fitting more in line with his Jets to Brazil output over pop-punk legends Jawbreaker, the track mixes Schwarzenbach's beautiful rasps alongside spoken word moments about how we relate to a field mouse and his "emphatic quest." This is all backed by a shimmer of guitar, bassy drones, and delicate, digitized beats.
You'll find the new track down below.
