Brian Aubert smiles cause he knows this is gooooood.

I can't wait!
What in the butt??? It’s been far too long, Silversun Pickups. Welcome back!
song is a welcome step back in the right direction.
Digging: Billie Eilish - When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
Which album would you equate this track to? It’s been years since I listened to them, so any nostalgia I have of them isn’t helping me at all lol.
it's not as dense or fuzzy, but the vibe definitely reminds me of Swoon moreso than anything off their last couple albums. the overall mood and increased reverb is reminiscent, plus the strings remind me of The Royal We and the build-up is similar to Growing Old Is Getting Old.
still needs more of the old crunch but this is good yes, that blend of shoegaze and hard rock/grunge is what made Carnavas and Swoon so great
This is the band that always pops up when I'm trying to type "Silverstein" into a searchbar. Fuck this band.
I love Silverstein but this A. band is better and B. judging by some of your ratings you would probably like their first couple albums at least
I've heard Carnavas and didn't care for it.
Great news and perfect timing. Was just listening through a lot of their other albums.
Nice. "Swoon" was my gateway Silversun Pickups album, and therefore is my favorite.
Carnavas is a top tier album.
Anyway, single is great. I can't wait for the rest of this
Why does everyone love Swoon so much and hate Better Nature so much
Excited to hear this album cuz this single is fantastic, doesn't seem much of a departure from Better Nature aside from the strings
This video is so ridiculous, caricatural and pretentious it could have been a trailer at the beginning of Tropic Thunder.
Song is fantastic, can't wait
Digging: Suldusk - Lunar Falls
cool song. never realy listened to this band as i thought it was cool for dad music. but yeah im aging into this shit
okay this is the first time i've ever seen what the members of this band look like, and that's pretty much the opposite of what i thought their singer would look like
cool track though
Guess i'm the only one here who thinks this is nothing special
@Neek, I don’t hate Better Nature, it’s just my connection with the album isn’t as immediate as it was for “Carnavas” or “Swoon”. Not gonna lie, it took me ~6 months and multiple listens to (finally!) get into “Neck Of the Woods”; for me, it just takes some time.
I've been waiting
I've been waiting for this moment all my life
I really like Neck of the Woods a lot, but didn't care for Better Nature much at all. This single seems pretty good. Not great, just good
This band jams so hard l love their first 2 guess I'll check the last 2 in preps for this
soooooo excited for their new album, Better Nature was a grower and my friend group still adores Friendly Fires so that album will always hold a special place in my heart. never been disappointed by a release of theirs, one of the most consistent bands imo
Same for me. Their first two albums hold a special place for me, and the two following took time to grow on me, but overall they're a very consistently good band for me. Looking forward to this one.
Stoooooked. One of my favorite alt bands so I'll definitely be jamming this when it comes out.
Digging: Karen O and Danger Mouse - Lux Prima
pretty good yeah
seems like a pretty even mix of neck of the woods and better nature
Digging: Glen Hansard - This Wild Willing
song is w/e but band rules
Boring track. The only slightly interesting element are the strings.
Digging: La Dispute - Panorama
Song is pretty good. Certainly better than 99% of indie garbage the staff here listen to.
I don't think they'll ever release something as good as their first two albums though. They ruled.
wow such a contrarian opinion
@Uzu I should really get more into Neck of the Woods already
It is a good, solid album overall.
That was an awesome song, great vibe.
Swoon is great
