MP3 – A Place to Bury Strangers : And I’m Up

A Place To Bury Strangers have premiered the second single off their new album, Worship. The song is “And I’m Up” and is available at Consequence of Sound today. On “And I’m Up,” Strangers apply their fuzzy filter to a song the grows out of a more straightforward pop sensibility. It’s something singer Oliver Ackermann calls “that classic 50’s vibe our parents grew up loving oh so much and then cramming down our throats through subliminal early life listening.”
