San Francisco five-piece Social Studies will be releasing their sophomore full-length album, Developer, on Nov. 19. Led by vocalist Natalia Rogovin, the band made their mark with their 2010 debut LP, Wind Up Wooden Heart,” a heartfelt collection of jagged pop gems. With Developer, however, the band is taking a much more measured, stripped-down approach and focusing on evoking a particular mood.
“Before, we were rebellious. We fucked with things just because we wanted to push limits and boundaries,” says Rogovin. “Developer is a more adult record. We tried to explore sounds and draw out parts to write more moving and focused songs.”
