Like a train chugging toward the light, the new Lower Dens song "Brains" keeps coming. With an incessant snare roll and back-and-forth vocals, "Brains" is a relentless pop track that finds its power in its controlled, understated delivery.
The somehow uptempo track, from the band's forthcoming "Nootropics" (pronounced No-eh-tro-pics) album out May 1, was released to the Internet last week to critical acclaim, garnering a spot on Pitchfork's "Best New Track" list. Judge for yourself by downloading it here or streaming it below.
What do you think of the song? Will "Nootropics" outdo the group's well-received last album, "Twin-Hand Movement"? Let us know in the comments.
