Portland’s Rare Monk aren’t going to be lulling anybody to sleep with their dreamy brand of indie rock. Their latest track “Splice” begins with a calming blend of guitars, keys and Dorian Aites’ airy vocals, but it’s during the chorus when the track really shines; the instrumentals take on an explosive edge that reminds us of As Tall As Lions at their strongest.
As luck would have it, our homies at B3SCI Records are releasing “Splice” as a single along with AA-side “Sleep/Attack” on February 18th. Get familiar with “Splice” below, and if you like what you hear, support good people and pre-order your digital and/or vinyl copy of the single.
