PACKS share new single "Brown Eyes" from Crispy Crunchy Nothing Out March 31st on Fire Talk.
Last month the Toronto/Ottawa band PACKS announced their sophomore LP Crispy Crunchy Nothing, which is set for release on Fire Talk Records on March 31st.
The follow up to their acclaimed 2021 debut Take The Cake, which earned accolades from outlets like Gorilla vs Bear, Bandcamp, and international media outlets who called the LP "the sound of classic indie rock as delivered by a promising new voice."
The album was announced with the single "4th of July", which earned best of the week nods from outlets like Uproxx, Consequence and Alt Press who called it "a delight", and this week the band are sharing a second single from the album a track called "Brown Eyes".
PACKS' new LP sharpens the laid back appeal of the band's debut, displaying a newfound flair in its arrangement and production that heightens the subtle strangeness of leader Madeline Link's songwriting. Where the album's first single settled on a breezy, folk adjacent sound, "Brown Eyes" is a burst of sludgy slacker rock that holds a low key sense of menace beneath its sunny exterior.
"I had lots of fun writing this song because it’s a simple rock song about falling in love disorientatingly hard and fast,"
"Disorientationally? Disorientably? Love disorients me."
