NYC’s Little Hustle have shared their new single “Wipe That Face Off Your Head” which premiered on BlackBook today. Listen here. The group builds a nervous tension that explodes into post-punk aggression as the song tackles the feelings of a job you can’t wait to escape, the company of people who misrepresent themselves, and the desire to transcend both. The title is a reference to Parker Posey’s character in Dazed and Confused.
The group recently released a mesmerizing video for “Hall of Gems” which finds front-woman Rebecca Keith spiraling in a darkened room and performing the song in a storm of golden flakes. The single blends indie rock, shoegaze guitars, buzzing synths, and an impassioned vocal melody to create a contemporary anthem with a classic alternative feel.
“Hall of Gems” and “Wipe That Face Off Your Head” are both taken from Little Hustle’s forthcoming debut album Notepasser due out in 2018.
