Young Widows Lock Into A Noisy Post-Punk Groove With New Burner "King Sol"

The transformation is complete, and it rules

Young Widows have stylistically shifted over the past few years and LPs, but never have they sounded so cogent and ripping as they do on the new track "King Sol". Sitting in a groove between their noisecore past and the recent leanings toward The Birthday Party/Niick Cave and gothic post-punk, the new burner is available on their upcoming LP Easy Pain. Look for it on Temporary Residence Limited, and order yours if you feel so inclined.


Give it a spin, and look for them on the road with the mighty Helms Alee in May. While you're down there, check out a live video of the band performing Easy Pain in its entirety from earlier this year
