Published Oct 19, 2015On last year's After the End, Floridian post-punks Merchandise embraced more pop-friendly sounds, and now they're celebrating those inclinations by teaming up with Dum Dum Girls for the new single "Red Sun."
The song is a gothic, synth-driven number that's filled with syncopated beats and spacious guitar textures. Dum Dum Girls leader Dee Penny lends her noir-ish vocals to the verses, while Merchandise's Carson Cox swoops and brightens things up somewhat for the catchy chorus.
Hear it below.
"Red Sun" will be released on a 7-inch through Sub Pop on November 27. It comes backed with a tune called "Echo."
