Weekend "Sirens" (rough mix)
Published Sep 21, 2012Noisy rock act Weekend -- not to be confused with noir & B singer the Weeknd -- released their album Sports through Slumberland back in 2010. Now they've set their sights on the follow-up, and they're teasing what's in store by sharing an early mix of the song "Sirens."
The three-minute cut begins with ambient swells before building to a hazy post-punk groove. It's pretty heady stuff, suggesting that the group will be sticking to their guns on the new album.
The details of the new disc are still unconfirmed, but it's expected to arrive in 2013. It's worth noting that this version of "Sirens" is only a rough mix, not the final album cut.
