Austin, TX mood punk/psych rock/cosmic band The Bright Light Social Hour have unveiled their new single “Not New“, alongside an accompanying music video.
The song is taken from their highly-anticipated new album ‘Emergency Leisure‘, which will hit the stores on August 2 via Escondido Sound. Pre-order your copy here.
Founded by Jackie O’Brien (bass/vocals) and Curtis Roush (guitar/vocals) – and newly joined by Mia Carruthers (keys/vocals), Zac Catanzaro (drums) and Juan Alfredo Ríos (percussion) – the band’s latest single showcases the sound of the forthcoming project, melding Texas trippiness with irresistible disco-punk groove.
Band member Jackie O’Brien, says:
“In 2019 we did a tour we didn’t realize would be our last. At least for TBLSH as we knew it. Emergency Leisure is a fictional autobiography from this period, centered on a seminal, hedonistic night at Bar L’Escogriffe in Montreal – our own Tropic of Cancer of sorts. “Not New” kicks off the odyssey, a new beginning in our Fool’s Journey. ”
