Pittsburgh noise pop outfit feeble little horse will release debut album ‘Girl With Fish’ on June 9th.
The band blend super-charged bursts of pop energy with some defiantly left-field ideas, resulting in a ridiculously infectious brew. Drawing strength from the DIY communities that propelled them, a flurry of singles last year caused a stir Stateside.
Signing to Saddle Creek, debut album ‘Girl With Fish’ lands this summer. Out on June 9th, the record finds feeble little horse embracing new methods of working. Citing Slint and A Country Western as influences, the drums are seemingly a homage to old school hip-hop.
New song ‘Tin Man’ is online now, and it’s representative of the album as a whole. The band’s Ryan Walchonski says:
“‘Tin Man’ is one of the songs that represents a new style of writing for us as a group. This song went back and forth through Google Drive links, trying to come up with the best iteration of the song that we were all happy with; vocals recorded, scrapped and re-recorded, drums scrapped and re-recorded, the chorus at one point was completely different.”
Band mate Lydia Slocum adds: “The song is about people who use sadness to control your actions because they know you will sympathise – oftentimes when these people are investigated there really is not much inside them, they just use emotions to get what they want out of other people. I have my qualms with this sort of person…”
Tune in now.
