Our friends at Wondering Sound have premiered the new Pity Sex track “Acid Reflex” from their forthcoming split 7″ with Adventures. Here’s what Wondering Sound had to say about the new song:
The Ann Arbor four-piece hasn’t strayed far from their late-’80s indie rock leanings, but the single we got our hands on, “Acid Reflex,” is a return that showcases a shoegaze-y wall of sound. The song is ripe with seething distortion pedals and an interlocking vocal exchange between Brennan Greaves’ lo-fi, deadpan singing and Britty Drake’s chilled-out coo. After the restrained wails of a guitar solo comes to a close, Greaves makes a laundry list of his needs: love, drugs, looks, God, comfort and fortune. Edging into ‘90s emo territory, he’s doing what knows best: baring it all, for better or worse.
