In 2016, Paste’s Zach Blumenfeld gushed about Chicago band NE-HI’s signature sound, “a fusion of ‘60s surf rock and the ‘80s college scene, with a proclivity toward Roger McGuinn-esque guitar tone.” Two members of that band, Jason Bala & Alex Otake, now helm another similarly hazy rock project called Earring.
Heavy yet undeniably hook-y, Earring’s latest track, “Flower Every,” is a departure from the straighter sludge of their 2016 debut, Tunn Star. The band offer a fittingly shadowy description of the track, writing: “We pick some flowers for what they might say. We give them to speak the things we don’t know how to. This song is one of those flowers.”
