With the release of 2012's Broad Shoulders, Dikembe proved themselves as one of the best bands coming out of the emo-revival scene. This summer they are releasing their follow-up called Mediumship. Listen to the first single, "Hood Rat Messiah," above.

The song starts out softly, with percussion leading into delicate guitar-work and subtle reverb, with Steven Gray's vocals echoing overtop. A minute in, however, the instrumentation explodes. Guitars erupt into power chords and Gray belts out the heartbreaking line, "I can't find a better way to be," before the instrumentation softens again. "Hood Rat Messiah" is a very dynamic and compelling listen with masterful use of swells.

Mediumship is available for pre-order on the Tiny Engines Bandcamp. For more information on Dikembe, including music and tour dates, check out their Bandcamp.
