Los Angeles noise quartet Sprain announced their debut LP As Lost Through Collision, out on Sept. 4 on The Flenser. Today, they unleashed the killer lead single “Worship House.”
“Worship House” is a shoegaze-infused post-punk journey with clear influence from inventive ’90s acts like Slint. Still, the band find ways to stay distinct—their haunting instrumentals are mixed with explosive feedback and blood-chilling screams.
The album was engineered by Josiah Mazzaschi at The Cave (Built to Spill, The Jesus and Mary Chain) and mixed by Tim Green at Louder Studios (The Melvins, Lungfish, Jawbreaker).
Of their sound, the band says, “This record was a conscious effort to move beyond the initial style we experimented with on our last EP into something more unique—something more ‘us.’”
