Downtown Boys follow-up to the politically charged single 'A Wall' with their new track 'Lips That Bite' today - it's a strong single, we love the contrast of the disaffected vocals over the intricately weaved upbeat surf-indie leanings. Like 'A Wall' before it, there's a bit of everything in there with keys and even a sax solo towards the end - it works, it's a really well put together track check it out here:
'Cost of Living' will be Downtown Boys’ first record for Sub Pop, and is due for release 11th August.
The album is at once incendiary, cathartic, and fun, melding the band’s revolutionary ideals with boundless energy. Produced by Fugazi’s Guy Picciotto, 'Cost of Living' shows a sense of maturity without compromising the band’s righteous assault and captivating presence.
