Cymbals Eat Guitars - ‘Warning’ (Pitchfork - Best New Track)

image

"If you’ve never seen Cymbals Eat Guitars play Lenses Alien live, you might be shit out of luck. The Staten Island band performed not a single song from their excellent 2011 LP while debuting new material on the road this past fall. “It was work playing material from Lenses Alien live,” frontman Joseph D’Agostino explained. “If you had even a couple drinks before the show, there was no way you were gonna nail everything.” But judging from the singles Shaolin’s finest have let go from their upcoming third record LOSE, their only mistake was forgetting to have fun.

Even more so than "Jackson" and "Chambers", “Warning” maintains every development from last time out and gets rid of the unnecessary complexities that might cause an audience to check out. Essentially a rocket-fueled redux of "Shore Points", you get the same tricky guitar riffs and hyper-detailed lyrics—”You’re lookin’ mighty ghostly just like Bowie on ‘Soul Train’,” D’Agostino sings. But this time, it’s within an instantly knowable song structure where the chorus actually repeats; they hit the crescendo at the end, resulting in quintessential indie rock that’s quickly identifiable as Cymbals Eat Guitars. After years of cleverly taking from the indie rock canon, “Warning” is Cymbals Eat Guitars’ gift back.”

Pitchfork have premiered another new track from Cymbals Eat Guitars' new album, LOSE, out on 25th August. Check it out 'Warning' here.

Pre-order LOSE from the below stores. Please note that pre-orders from the indie stores also come with a free live disc, LOOSE.

“It’s been like this dark undercurrent in everything that I’ve written in my life so far […] and now it’s not an undercurrent, it’s totally explicit. And it’s all out there. And I do feel like I can begin to write about other things in an equally honest and forthright way. Which is really liberating. I’ve kind of said my truth at this point. So we’ll see what that becomes.”

Stereogum have run the first interview with Cymbals Eat Guitars about new record, LOSE (out 25th August). Read it here.

That same site have also premiered new track, ‘Chambers’, a song about 'dealing with the loneliness and alienation that comes from living in that part of New York, and the anxiety of watching your family grow older.' That’s the song in the Soundcloud player the top.
