Listen to “Blank Stare,” the New Audio Assault from Solids



On April 15, Montreal alt-rockers Solids will release Else EP, the band’s first audio assault since 2014’s LP, Blame Confusion.

Ahead of the EP release, Solids have debuted its lead single, “Blank Stare.” You can listen to that below and quite possibly hear it later this month when the duo joins The Dirty Nil for a series of gigs.

““The EP serves as a melancholic deconstruction of the ’90s slacker ethos explored on their first LP, but it also charts Solids’ transition into a wider and more experimental sound, borrowing strands from Dinosaur Jr., Hum and Unwound and coiling them into an anxious, alienated sound that’s all their own,” reads a description of the Else EP. “The final product is a snapshot of a band that’s travelled 5000 miles in 19 minutes; a band that’s chained itself to the road in search of inspiration.”
