Published May 13, 2016Austin prog-psych quartet Boyfrndz are set to release their third full-length album Impulse later this month, and before it arrives, Exclaim! is giving you a chance to hear album cut "Silhouette" right here.
Recorded with producer Jeff Zeigler (War on Drugs, Kurt Vile, Nothing), Impulse is described as "a cerebral and emotive sonic journey" on top of being their most mature effort to date. As for "Silhouette," the urgent cut puts the band's liberal use of contrasting dynamics front and centre, shifting from slinky guitar melodies to brash, abrasive riffing in the blink of an eye.
"I find myself writing a lot of guitar sections like the verse in this these days, kind of creepy little parts that give a lot of room for my bandmates to work with," vocalist/guitarist Scott Martin tells Exclaim! "It's one of my favourites on the album."
Impulse will arrive on May 27 through Brutal Panda Records, and can be pre-ordered here. Hear "Silhouette" in the player below, where you'll also find the band's upcoming U.S. tour dates.
