[press release] Get out your sweatband. Hot on the thumping heels of this year's stunning "APPMTTX" EP, Appomattox, the celebrated Brooklyn post-punk torchbearers have dropped "Radiator", a tightly-woven pogo fete that will detonate your pacemakers.
After a successful and busy 2011, which included multiple East Coast shows with Mike Watt and The Lemonheads, "Radiator" is a victory lap around Appomattox's best year yet. Underneath the sugary harmonies, this poppy banger is teeming with the band's familiar jagged guitar stabs and bouncing low end groove, all bound together by their signature quick and unrelenting pulse. But "Radiator" also finds the band truly beginning to explore their sonic boundaries, in this case by opting for a less distorted, much richer sound, somehow without at all sacrificing the frenetic intensity they have become known for. "Radiator" is a fantastic new song from a very exciting young band. Go ahead and try not to dance! Look for more from Appomattox in the new year.
Listen to "Radiator" HERE.
"Radiator" was engineered and recorded at Brooklyn's RAD Studio by Josh Ascalon (Hooray For Earth, Das Racist, Twin Shadow). Fans of early Gang of Four, Fugazi, and The Police will know exactly what's up.
