The upcoming album from Split Single is generating a lot of the buzz at the moment, thanks mainly to the attention these new tracks are rightly getting. Today I'm going to share a new one, "Blank Ribbons", and it's a taut stunner from the upcoming album.
Riding a tight, tense rhythm, Narducy uses "Blank Ribbons" to showcase his brand of smart post-punk. The guy has played with Guided by Voices and Bob Mould and Superchunk and, sure, one can hear bits of those acts here but really Narducy's success is all his own. Closer to the best moments on old Polvo records than those on Foolish, "Blank Ribbons" is a yearning rocker and a nice tease of the upcoming album.
Metal Frames will be out in a few weeks. In the meantime, follow Jason Narducy's Split Single via the band's official website.
