Leading up its release, they busted out a captivatingly strange music video for “Cut Hair,” released the single “Light Bulb Boy,” then headlined a nearly-sold-out Rickshaw Stop, full of fresh-faced fans singing along. Noise Pop just announced Zelma Stone is playing Swedish American Hall on March 3. How do they react to the accelerated whirl of their success? They’re refreshingly humbled. “It’s like this [...]
