Published Oct 10, 2014Moving on from this year's shoegaze-heavy Guilty of Everything LP and a recent repress of Downward Years to Come, Philadelphia's Nothing are closing out a busy 2014 with a split-release with Whirr. Before the record arrives November 17 through Run for Cover Records, you can check out Nothing's alt-rock-styled contribution, "July the Fourth."
Built around a heavy groove of crashed drums and slippery, menacing guitar hooks, the track's low-key vocals weigh in on metaphorical crucifixions, thoughts of revenge and a loose allusion of "trying to mop up the mess." Sonically, it sounds something like a brawny, long-lost b-side from Hum's You'd Prefer an Astronaut.
