Ann Arbor, Michigan shoegazers Pity Sex shared their new song, "Bonhomie." Listen above.
The band released their first full length, Feast of Love, on June 25, 2013. Since then, they've been working collectively on new music. Drummer Sean St. Charles spoke with Interview Magazine about the writing process for the song:
The band writes the bulk of the instrumentation together, and when the song starts coming together that's when we decide who's going to write vocals and lyrics. So the song sounded almost like it does now and to me it's like, 'This is a pop song, in a way we don't always do,' so my inspiration was trying to make it interesting. I liked the thought of a song that's banal and crass, in a way that's often off-putting in a relationship song. This is like a bratty love song, but since there are two perspectives it's not overbearing. They're both a little immature, juvenile. There's something that's endearing when you see both sides of a relationship and both people are acting a little immature.
The track starts off with a hazy intro featuring slow guitar strums, and then speeds up with head-banging drums. Vocalists Brennan Greaves and Brittany Drake trade off lines while singing delicately over distorted, bass heavy melodies.
"Bonhomie" will be on Pity Sex's upcoming album, White Hot Moon, scheduled for release on April 29, 2016 on Run for Cover records. Pick it up on their website.
