Shiraz Bhatti, Nic Gohl, and Drew McBride take a thoughtful and direct approach with their songwriting, yielding spry melodies and inventive structures. It’s a clever combination of jagged post-punk and refined indie rock. A tightly wound rhythm section teeters on the edge, but is anchored by intricate guitar interplay and saturated with an enigmatic spirit. Their first album, 2018’s “Deeper” channeled the anxiety of change in everyday life and navigating the unhinged political atmosphere. The new single "Run" takes a more existential approach, reaching down past the emotion and staring back at the inner.
