“Psychic Trauma” is not only the name of the new song from the Cloud Nothings, but it’s also how you might feel once the steady, even-keeled track — spoiler alert! — transforms into a completely different song at the forty-five second mark. In one quick step it accelerates from pleasant, low key, low-fi rock to driving, blasting, cymbal-crashing punk. It’s a fantastic little bait-and-switch in which the switched-to tune is far more engaging, compelling, and raucous than the bait. Stream it below.

“Psychic Trauma” will appear on the Cloud Nothing’s upcoming album Here And Nowhere Else, out April 1st via Carpark/Mom + Pop.
