No matter what, you can know that whatever music that noise duo Lightning Bolt releases will be stellar. With their latest album Sonic Citadel coming in a little over a week, their new single “Husker Don’t” shows the duo’s poppier side while still hitting things harder and faster.
Opening with a searing riff, the song is definitely more melodic sounding. The chaos between the two members is all there while the bass and the drums craft a more upbeat stride. The vocals aren’t as buried in the mix as previous released tracks. Keep in mind, this isn’t the two piece going soft by any means. All of the noise markings and intensity is still present, just wrapped up a little easier on the ears.
You can stream “Husker Don’t” on all streaming sites and you can pre-order Sonic Citadel directly from Thrill Jockey Records on multiple formats and bundles ahead of its October 11 release. Lightning Bolt will be on tour beginning October 13 at Desert Daze in Lake Perris, CA until November, 16 at SWG3 in Glasgow, UK.
