It’s safe to say most of the music world is looking forward to the reunited Sleater-Kinney‘s new album and 2015 tour (every show sold out immediately). Whether you are high on ’90s nostalgia or peeking into Carrie Brownstein‘s past after a Portlandia binge, the consensus seems to be one of barely squelched squeals of excitement.
Surface Envy is the second track to, well, surface from the upcoming LP No Cities to Love, due on January 20th on Sub Pop. With a distinctly Pacific NorthWest crunch, the track is written tightly and makes us want to seriously get up and get down. The song was announced a few days ago at the end of their Reddit AMA session.
If you missed the first single, Bury Your Friends, you can stream that here. It’s a solid, catchy track displaying many sonic characteristics we’ve come to know and love in a Sleater-Kinney song.
