LISTEN: Sleater-Kinney Is Snatching Wigs with “Hurry on Home”
The first track from the St. Vincent–produced full-length is here to save the day.
Never let it be said that Sleater-Kinney doesn’t give the people what they want. A mere twenty-four hours afters after sharing a spooky new band photo, the ladies have messed around and released a scorching new track, “Hurry on Home.”
The first song from the band’s highly anticipated album featuring Annie Clark—a.k.a. St. Vincent—on production delivers the goods and more. “Hurry on Home” turns on the bright lights when the super-charged chorus hits the spot, complete with laser-beam guitars and ghostly, disembodied voices floating in the mix. It’s an inspired collaboration, and bodes well for the forthcoming full-length.
“I think for Carrie [Brownstein] and Corin [Tucker] it was liberating to explore a different sound palette,” drummer Janet Weiss said in a press statement. Listen to the fruits of the band’s newfound “manic energy of empowerment” below.
