Adelaide power-punk trio Horror My Friend are set to release "Admit None" on Friday, August 25th, with the new track exclusively available to preview today via Rolling Stone.
Back in January the band shared "DIYS", their first new music since 2016 debut Stay In, Do Nothing. The track serves as a thunderous, full-throttle re-entry, with a prominent, thumping pulse spiked by shrieks of angst.
With attention sought (and deservedly re-earned), "Admit None" is a settler — a sonically richer offering, with layered harmonies contrasted against more direct, underpinning guitars. As equally reflective as anthemic, "Admit None" serves as a mark of maturation, the band maintaining their usual high-octane energy not simply with guitar squeals, shouted screams and other collar-grappling tactics, but via an ever-changing palette, where vocals sharply overlap, puppet-stringed elements rise and retreat for spotlight significance and pop hooks clash against guitars, both equally capable of crafting the song's catchiness.
Horror My Friend will launch the new single at a series of shows through Spring — including an appearance at Rolling Stone's Live Lodge pop-up venue on September 27th.
