New Kim Gordon Single Goes Exactly Where You’d Want It To


When you hear the name Kim Gordon, you should immediately be in awe to a degree. The legacy of noise rock that Gordon created with Sonic Youth could be enough, but her solo projects since have been just as amazing and rife with sonic density. On her new single “Air BnB” from her upcoming full length No Home Record, she takes all of those elements and blends them into a song that feels exactly like what you’d want from her.

The song has plenty of chaos strewn into the stride. With searing guitar work and Gordon’s signature vocals, the song is dense and flows like her songs twenty years ago. It’s different but also what you should expect fro the noise rock pioneer. The chorus is upbeat with stabs of sound that would sound piercing from anyone else, but the way they’re mixed and arranged just makes you long for more and more. The video looks like a lyric video, but rather it tells a story from why the video wasn’t shot in an Air BnB to what the narrator is wearing at the moment.

“Air BnB” can be streamed on all platforms or purchased in all digital outlets while No Home Record can be pre-ordered directly from Matador Records on multiple formats and bundles ahead of its October 11 release date. Kim Gordon does not have any tour dates scheduled at this time, though that could soon change.
