Published Oct 19, 2014The wait for that new Sleater-Kinney song is over. Just a couple days ahead of the official release of Sleater-Kinney's Start Together box set, "Bury Our Friends," from the collection's "mystery 7-inch," has surfaced online.
The cut plays like later-period Sleater-Kinney track, circa The Woods, with a suitably grooving drum shuffle settling beneath an entwining of riffs both slippery and staccato. The new tune likewise brings back together the always perfectly-meshing vocals of guitarists Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein. That said, there's some worried and weary unrest in those lyrics.
It's as yet unclear if the new single is a preview for a thus-far only rumoured release dubbed No Cities to Love.
