Los Angeles / Orange County punk trio Girl Tears have shared a new single, ‘Cold Thoughts‘ taken from their forthcoming second album ‘Woke Against The Tide‘ which will be released Friday 28th October via Sinderlyn / Remote Control.
‘Woke Against The Tide‘ is the follow up to ‘Tension‘. Four tours and 100+ shows later, playing art spaces, houses, DiY venues, bars, barns, backyards, basements, and everything in between, Girl Tears have delivered a natural, confident progression from their debut.
Listen to ‘Cold Thoughts‘ below.
‘Woke Against The Tide‘ wrestles with themes of Love/Hate, Good/Evil – and in particular – the space between these polarising ideas. ‘Cold Thoughts’ and the previously released track, ‘Uneasy‘ personify the album’s conflict. There are hooks, melody and structure, but also a bit of chaos built on a more complex arrangement that’s constantly shifting and evolving, much like the band themselves.
Whereas their debut ‘Tension‘ was more a discovery, ‘Woke Against The Tide‘ is more abstract. It creates a dense and unforgiving experience, really challenging the listener to keep up.
