"Piano, mandolin, harmonica, four-part vocal harmonies and even no-input harsh noise all weave their way through New Moon," says Brooklyn group.

Brooklyn punks the Men will release their fourth studio album, New Moon, via Sacred Bones on March 4, which falls almost exactly a year after eclectic 2012 breakthrough Open Your Heart. For the recording process, the quartet ditched Brooklyn for a house in upstate Big Indian, New York. “Entering with only the most skeletal sketches, the house was selected as an incubator for its technical limitations, 32-hour orbit and predisposal to celestial intervention,” notes the band. The album also includes “piano, mandolin, harmonica, four-part vocal harmonies and even no-input harsh noise.”


The Men’s new single, the aptly titled “Electric”, contains little hint of piano or mandolin. It’s a fuzz-driven, brash rocker of a track that hearkens back to the one-two punch of Open Your Heart‘s opening tracks, “Turn It Around” and “Animal”.


“Electric” will be released as a single on January 22 via 7” vinyl. Stream the track below.
