TENDER: Bottled Up

Off the band’s forthcoming sophomore record, Fear of Falling Asleep, out on Partisan Records on 18 January, comes “Bottled Up,” a deep and bluesy tune about introversion. The song’s many layers—guitar, bass, drum, atmospheric filters and daunting vocals—play perfectly together. Though reminiscent of recent releases by other artists, as the band’s name ironically implies, it’s a bit more tender and less boasting (and arguably better).
