While rough-and-tumble Toronto indie crew Casper Skulls released their Lips & Skull EP via Buzz Records, they are pushing and shoving their way back into our lives with the aggro pop cut "Nighthawks."
In a statement, here's what the group's Neil Bednis had to say about the song:
"Nighthawks" was one of the first songs we worked on as a band. We recorded it a year-and-a-half ago at the same time we recorded the song "Mink Coats" with Taylor Barrow. It's about a period I went through feeling stuck in a pattern of "nightlife" monotony. At the time I felt so unfulfilled and I wanted things to change for myself, but what I've come to realize is that no matter where I run that feeling of boredom doesn't go away unless I keep moving forward and keep growing.
You can hear the Modern Lovers-indebted "Nighthawks" below, where you'll find the band's upcoming North American tour dates.
