Last month, genre-bending composer and producer Shlohmo (real name Harry Laufer) released a new single alongside revealing plans for his upcoming album The End, set to drop next month. Now the artist has returned with a new single titled “Rock Music” — a track that laboriously trudges forth with the artist’s signature style and sound. “Like a beautiful anxious wreck, it’s a huge fucking mess and one of my favourite messes I’ve made,” he says.

The new, slow-paced track powerfully indulges in dystopian soundscapes that relish in its muted atmosphere, with Laufer providing a variety of distorted guitar samples and scuttering synths. In many senses, the new single stays true to what Shlohmo has described his upcoming album as being “about the end of the world, but from the viewpoint of smoking on the couch.”

You can stream “Rock Music” below. Be prepared as The End LP is out via Friends of Friends Music / WeDidIt on March 22.

For more music news, Weezer just announced two new albums.
