Preoccupations sing of ‘knowing and forgetting’ on new single ‘Death of Melody’

Preoccupations have shared another new single, “Death of Melody.”

The track comes from their forthcoming fourth studio album, Arrangements, out September 9th. “Death of Melody” is a perfect preview of the record, recalling the sounds of their 2015 album while moving toward more of a dystopian, avant pop sensibility. With reverb-heavy melodies and shoegazy instrumentals, this track is sure to get you lost in your memory.

“It’s about having a song stuck in your head, and having no idea what it is, and driving yourself to the brink of dementia trying to figure out what it is,” the band’s Matthew Flegel explains. “It’s about knowing and forgetting, existing in the middle ground between the permanent and temporary.”

Listen to “Death of Melody” below.

The forthcoming album is set to be one of their most intense, yet most playful albums thus far.

In addition to “Death of Melody,” Arrangements features the previously released “Ricochet.”

Check out the tracklist for Arrangements below.
