Long-running North Carolina-based experimental outfit Horseback, helmed by Jenks Miller, have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, Dead Ringers, at Decibel. The new track is titled “Lion Killer” and it features a glimmering psych rock sound interwoven with minimal electronica. Miller had the following to say regarding the tune:
“The muse dictated a creepy, electronic sound palette this time around,…Because recent Rose Cross records have been pursuing the pastoral psych-rock sound of Horseback’s 2014 record, Piedmont Apocrypha, we had an opportunity to venture into the heady regions of the ‘hidden reverse.’ This isn’t really new territory for Horseback, as Coil, Nurse With Wound, and a handful of post-punk bands have always been very influential to our sound. But it’s certainly the furthest we’ve traveled in this particular direction.”
Check out the track now.
Dead Ringers will be released on August 12 via Relapse Records. Pre-order here.
