Cancers is a Georgia-based duo made up of Lenny Miller and Ella Kaspar. They make sludge-y, textured music, blending the heaviness and drawling vocals of shoegaze with bluegrass and weird electronics—imagine a Southern version of the Jesus & Mary Chain with more grime and synths. This song, Helpless, is from an upcoming seven-inch with Debt Offensive Records, out June 9. It's a lo-fi recording but sounds huge, and the whole thing feels like a breath of fresh air in 2015.

Preorder the seven-inch here.
