Premiere: Tera Melos - "Sunburn"
Experimental indie rockers Tera Melos just sent us their hooky new track "Sunburn," and we've had it stuck in our heads for the past hour. These guys are from Northern Californa, which may explain their liberal meshing of genre and willingness to fool around. You can hear hints of mid-90s Chicago indie, Hella, and HEALTH all over "Sunburn." Their new album X'ed Out will be available everywhere April 16th through the fine folks at Sargent House. Check the stream below and pre-order the record right here.
