Philadelphia-based indie rockers Purling Hiss have shared “Useful Information,” the opening cut from their just-announced EP Interstellar Blue.
“Useful Information” sprawls with laid-back psych-rock-via-blues instrumentation. The running bass line sets the scene, keeping the nearly six-minute long track moving with ease while a dripping guitar sweats out the understated lyrical anxiety. “Women and their children / Writing on the wall / Useful information / watch how they will fall,” frontman Mike Polizze dejectedly croons.
Purling Hiss promise to “put the hot ‘n’ humid back into summer” with the Interstellar Blue EP, due July 9 via Drag City. Listen to “Useful Information” below, then revisit Purling Hiss’ 2013 stop at Daytrotter while you peruse the EP’s details.
