Deafheaven – “In Blur”
Deafheaven followers had been stunned when the announcement of the band’s new album Infinite Granite got here accompanied with a brand new music that… didn’t actually sound like Deafheaven in any respect, with George Clarke’s new clear vocal strategy.

Pet Symmetry – “2021: A Private Area Odyssey”
Chicago rockers Pet Symmetry are in full petsimmist mode (haha, get it?) on their new album Future Fits, due later this week. The brand new monitor “2021: A Private Area Odyssey” is a propulsive indie jam centered across the fixed barrage of horrible shit that’s fed to us, on a regular basis within the fashionable age. It’s a miserable actuality we dwell in, however at the least we now have Pet Symmetry to maintain it enjoyable!
Hand Habits – “Aquamarine”

After delivering one among 2020’s most fun tasks with No matter, Man, Kansas Metropolis cherubs Blackstarkids are able to unveil their correct debut album, Puppies Eternally, later this yr.
