Portland’s garage rock quartet Mr. Bones released their debut self-titled album in February of last year. Now, almost exactly a year later, they’re set to drop their sophomore album, Bites, on February 28 via Good Cheer Records.
We’ve got the exclusive premiere of the album’s newest single,”12,” a lo-fi pop song equal parts head-bobbing and gloomy. According to vocalist/guitarist Leland Brehl, ”’12’ is a fatalist love song, about somebody eventually falling in love with you after initial unrequited love.”
Drummer Asher McKenzie has another interpretation.
”’12’ is about Leland not understanding how numbers work,” says McKenzie.
Listen to “12” above.
