Brooklyn based band Small Black has a new single out from their first full length album New Chain, which officially hits your eardrums on October 26th. The single “Photojournalist” begins with a lilting sliding beat before dropping into a gorgeous moment of ambient wash. As the lyrics kick in with lead singer Josh Kolenik repeating the refrain “rise up again, like a ghost” the song does just that, growing more concrete in form as Josh’s vocals strengthen, are supported by a chorus, and drums come up in the mix. Layers are added until the song hits maximum velocity only to disappear even quicker than it began. Small Black are feverishly working to make sure your fall is full of surprises. Stay tuned for new songs, remixes, videos and more as well as fall tour dates including an appearance at the CMJ Music Festival in October. In the meantime catch Small Black on their home turf September 17 performing at the Todd P curated show at the Monster Island Basement in Brooklyn. Grab the new single below:
