Jeff Rosenstock Drops Wild New Single


Jeff Rosenstock has become the king of the New Year’s drop. First with his album POST, the New York artist has figured out how to be a first in getting music out in new ways. While we thought his last single with Laura Stevenson was his last for his continual release 2020 DUMP, he’s since revealed a new single that hits perfectly. On “Illegal Fireworks and Hiding Bottles in The Sand” Rosenstock offers a new sound without abandoning his indie rock world.


With thunderous drums and a squealing guitar, Rosenstock heads into a pedal bathed sound that touches on shoegaze. The vocals are mixed within the music as he sings, yet they’re still differentiated enough to hear them. The music has a moderate stride, yet the distorted guitars don’t deter from his sound. Even with a breakdown point, the song still sounds like Rosenstock, just reconfigured to a degree. It’s different but it works in many ways.

The song can be heard above or on Bandcamp. It’s also available to purchase on the platform as a digital single or with his album 2020 DUMP.
