Deafheaven keep up their fantastic work this decade with another killer, multifaceted lead single from their new album. As always, the lyrics of this song are really worth a read. My favorites are the ending lines:

Hung from the throat by sunflower stems
Hung from the throat by sunflower stems
Sunflower stems"

I can't believe I let this pass me by last year. Definitely the best metalcore band working not named Converge.

Favorite tracks: Real, Spy, Bleeding in the Blur, The New Reality

Favorite tracks: Slaughtergarden Suite, A Sunset Song, Scarlet Dream

I think I'm going to give this some listens when school starts for me. My dad also really loves La Monte Young (and a lot of minimalist composers) hehehehe
