With the release of their new LP Developer fast approaching, Social Studies is keeping busy, premiering a new single “Away For The Weekend” just a week after dropping a video for the record’s first single “Terracur”.
“Away For The Weekend” premiered recently on Vice, which described the band as “like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs only sober.” The track is a bruising statement of independence, with Natalia Rogovin’s haunting vocals bouncing over the top of an explosion of thunderous guitars, drums, and bass. Rogovin closes the song with the bold proclamation “I’m not coming back.” Listen here on The Bay Bridged via Antenna Farm Records’ SoundCloud page:
The “Terracur” video was released earlier this month, premiering on Paste and featuring some stunningly beautiful San Francisco nighttime scenery as the backdrop for this “study in self-inflicted alienation.” Check it out after the jump, along with details on Social Studies’ upcoming record release gig at The Independent.
Developer drops November 13th on Antenna Farm, and the CD and LP are now available for pre-order. The vinyl comes with a download code, including a bonus track entitled “No Oh No”, a demo from the album’s sessions. All pre-orders include a limited edition Social Studies tour poster. You can also grab the “Terracur” single over on iTunes, and it comes with a Sugar & Gold remix of “Holler Boys” as a b-side.
