Pennsylvanian post-hardcore/post-rock hybrids Aniqatia have premiered a new track from their upcoming EP, Luminous, at Heavy Blog is Heavy. Titled “February”, the new track features five slow-burning moments of moody, shimmer post-rock that is met with driving post-hardcore rhythms and attitude, with a touch of emo added for good measure. The band commented on the new tune:
“’February’ was chosen as the first single off of Luminous because it takes all the varying dynamics found on the EP and combines them into a roller-coaster of a song. The track contains a little bit of everything that we pride ourselves in as a band and we are eager to share it with everyone. Lyrically, ‘February’ explores naturalistic themes about the harsh Winter we had last year here in Pennsylvania. Most of the writing for Luminous happened during that very long and frustrating Winter, which gave way to the ominous tones that can be heard on ‘February’ and throughout the rest of the EP.
Check out the track here.
Luminous will be released on March 11 via Nefarious Industries. The band’s upcoming tour dates can be found below.
