Published Apr 23, 2015Pop-rockin' Toronto party starters Ginger Ale & the Monowhales are set to unveil their latest single "Blue Balls" this weekend, but you can hear it right now at Exclaim! a couple days early.
"Blue Balls" hears the band taking a poppier approach to songwriting, and the result is brimming with bubbly, bounce-along, sunshine-y sounds. From the infectious opening guitar riffs to the expressive, energetic vocals, the new tune is a bit more upbeat than its title might imply.
A press release notes that the song aims to serve up "sugar, spice, and just enough strife" to really convey the torturous, titular condition. The outlook's not too grim, though, with the band confident that "Blue Balls" is "a danceable summer anthem that'll cure the ache in your pants."
The track was produced by the Monowhales themselves and marks the first follow-up material to last year's debut HA! EP, which was also just released as a "FANCAN."
Ginger Ale & the Monowhales will be celebrating the track's release on April 25 at the Smiling Buddha in Toronto with an event going by the name the Blue Balls Bash, but before you head out to the party, give the new song an early spin in the player below.
