Gang of Four "Stranded"

Gang of Four "Stranded"

English post-punk icons Gang of Four have given up yet another preview from their upcoming What Happens Next, this time showing off a bleak, jittery number called "Stranded."

Though toned down in comparison to Gang of Four's vintage damage goods, not to mention the recent blues-skewering "England's in My Bones" single with Alison Mosshart, the track compels with its lock grooves, meditative interlocking vocal harmonies, and playful, if restrained, six-string licks.

The single can be streamed down below, while What Happens Next hits North American stores February 24 via Metropolis Records. The UK edition lands March 2 through Membran.
