The Notwist - "Kong"

Publish date:
The Notwist

You already know that the Notwist are back this year with their first record in six years, and you've already heard the title track / first single, "Close to the Glass;" well, here's a second taste, "Kong," an excellent piece of krauty, rhythmic guitar pop in which melancholy lyrics about unceasing rain get juxtaposed with bubbly instrumentals. Our favorite moment, though, would have to be when the whole thing devolves into a film-noir groove and the strings and acoustic riffs kick in. Check it out - Close to the Glass is out February 25 on Sub Pop.
