Following “Streaky,” the first single off of Death Grips‘ forthcoming Year of the Snitch, the experimental trio have released a new single. “Black Paint” strips the band’s aggressive sound down to a noise rock foundation in the vein of bands on Blast First or Touch and Go Records. Occasional record scratches intersperse MC Ride’s familiar screamed vocals and Zach Hill’s flailing drums. Riffing guitars, noodling synths and spacey samples aid the song’s unnerving, claustrophobic mood.
Listen to the track above and stay tuned for more news on Year of the Snitch, which is reportedly being produced by Tool bassist Justin Chancellor and Shrek director Andrew Adamson.
Refamiliarize yourself with the upcoming album’s tracklist in the meantime.
