Body Stuff: "Ice" (Punknews Exclusive)

Body Stuff: “Ice” (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new single by Body Stuff, the project helmed by Curran Reynolds.

"Ice" is a far out jam. The band is decidedly New York, though they pull from seemingly desperate corners of the metropolis. "Ice" starts out with a rolling, dream pop intro that would fit at home at many a Brooklyn loft. But then, just as the intro fades away, the song devolves into a sonic, post-metal pummeling that would fit right at home on a Swans record. Rarely does a band go from sounding so nice to so mean!

Speaking to Punknews about the track, Reynolds said, "'Ice' is a song about seizing the day. I wrote this one a couple winters ago when I was living alone in a house on a lake in Maine. The guest vocalist is Ariel Hall. I went to elementary school with Ariel and it felt like a nice full circle to put her on this record."

Body Stuff 2 is out November 4th via The Path Less Traveled Records. Check the the new single below, right now!

The Undecided Majors: "Gone Wrong" (Punknews Exclusive)

The Undecided Majors: “Gone Wrong” (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new single by The Undecided Majors.

These guys were clearly raised on the pop-punk of Alkaline Trio and late 90s Green Day. There's a true dedication to melody here, but the serrated edge flashes every so often. Speakig to Punknews, the band explained the song's background. "The song was inspired by a girl who basically had her eyes set on cheating out of spite and did so for while. It was almost like an addiction for her, yet she also felt regret. That's why the chorus is, 'Cindy's gone insane, with drug injection and constant pain…' but she refused to end it with the current guy she was with, 'Cindy just move on, these head games you play, they lasted for so long.'"

The band's new EP In Spite is slated for a December release, but you can check out the new single below, right now.
