PREMIERE: Boston’s Horse Jumper of Love Have “Bagel Breath” and Expect to Cuddle

The loud 'n' slow trio drop their debut on March 11.

Boston trio Horse Jumper of Love play a slow, loud brand of indie rock—imagine Low on a budget and angry about it. The group have made a name for themselves in their hometown and are preparing to release their self-titled debut LP on March 11, and while they’ve already given the world a taste in the form of singles “Ugly Brunette” and “Spaceman,” “Bagel Breath,” which we’re pleased to be premiering today, showcases a different side of their sound.

The track struggles and chugs against its own inertia, moving with all of the strength and tension of a freight train heading up hill. Singer Dimitri Giannopoulos sketches a surprisingly tender scene—his subject crawls into someone’s bed, he gets crumbs everywhere, the other person treats him kindly—and while the band as it rages never quite makes it up that hill, getting there hardly seems like the point. This is a song that circles itself, examining a single moment in time; by the time its three minutes have played out, it’s barely moved an inch.

You can give “Bagel Breath” a listen, and see Horse Jumper of Love’s info below, as well as a handful of upcoming tour dates.
