Rip Room Premiere New Single "Dead When It Started" at Post Trash
Rip Room’s debut album Alight and Resound comes out in just over two weeks! We’re stoked to team up with Post Trash to premiere the new song “Dead When It Started.” Some highlights:
• Rip Room trade between muscle and melody, dexterity and wonkiness
• Rip Room play post-hardcore music with an air of art pop exuberance
• Rip Room’s songs are tightly wound and serrated at the edges
• The new single bounces with a circular post-punk guitar groove reminiscent of the Devo classic “Girl U Want”
If that’s not enough, the song also features drummer Gracie Malley pounding away on a car fender with a hammer! Take a listen and get an instant download of four songs now when you pre-order the record on mind-boggling limited edition vinyl.
