New HEALTH: “Tears” (from Max Payne 3)

Los Angelino noise rockers HEALTH have contributed a hell of a song to Rockstar Games’ newest title Max Payne 3 (which we hear is great). As great as HEALTH albums are, we think they’re even better when they do one-off shots like these (and “USA Boys”, for example). “Tears” screeches and pulses in all the right ways; it pulls inspiration from New York hip hop as much as it does James Cameron’s outer space mine shafts. Listen below:
