It’s been a minute since we heard from Los Angeles trio Behavior, so of course they’re returning with as much explosive energy as we’ve come to expect from them. With a new album Spirits & Embellishments set for a release in October, the three piece has just dropped the new song “The Thirsty Garden” from it, and it’s a sound that pushes and pulls at you as it ticks along.
The song isn’t what you may be expecting, as much of the current post-punk you’ll hear follows a formula laid out decades prior. Behavior doesn’t go that route, opting instead for a path that treads between early punk and modern post-punk. The end result is a track that doesn’t disappoint, even if you can’t tell the destination as it plays out as the three piece feels like they’re steps away from exploding with each tension based note.
The song is available to stream on all platforms, it can be purchased as a digital download from all online music retailers and Spirits & Embellishments can be pre-ordered directly from Post Present Medium ahead of its October 18 release. As of now there are no tour dates announced for the band, though that should change soon.
