Modest Mouse are readying their forthcoming album, The Golden Casket, and today they’ve shared its second single, “Leave A Light On.”
“Leave A Light On,” which follows the recently released “We Are Between,” comes packed with similar synth-driven instrumentals and anthemic vocals, offering up a catchy hook that’s sure to get stuck in your head.
“The song finds [frontman Issac] Brock navigating the existential threat of losing our humanity – and the interconnectedness that comes with it – amidst a constant societal barrage of physical and digital materialism,” according to a press release.
Listen to “Leave A Light On” below.
The Golden Casket marks Modest Mouse’s first full-length album in six years, and it’s set for release on June 25th via Epic.
“The album hovers in the liminal space between raw punk power and experimental studio science,” a press release explains of the forthcoming album, “frontman Isaac Brock explores themes ranging from the degradation of our psychic landscapes and invisible technology, to fatherhood. The twelve tracks behave like amorphous organisms, undergoing dramatic mutations and mood swings that speak to the chronic tug-of-war between hope and despair that plays out in Brock’s head.”
