Possible Humans - "Aspiring to Be a Bloke"

Despite how laid back it is at the start, the latest song from Melbourne's Possible Humans is an intense rock song. "Aspiring to Be a Bloke" has both the laid back slacker vibes of Pavement with the intensity of Nirvana. Even during the quiet, more sparse beginnings there is still a sense of foreboding. You're not quite sure if there is an explosion coming, but you know it could, and you don't quite know when. It might not bust out into a full on blast of punk rock noise, but the song does ramp up the intensity and noise eventually. While still maintaining the same pace. Band member Steve Hewitt describes it as "the whimpering man in the strong dog and vice versa... sarcasm and paradox at the roots of depression."

You can listen to "Aspiring to Be a Bloke" below. Everybody Split, the debut album from Possible Humans, will be out August 2 on Trouble in Mind. You can pre-order the album here. For more on Possible Humans, check them out on Facebook and Instagram.
