Portland, OR's NEW YEAR are back with another dose of their heavy 90's infused rock. "What People Say" sounds a little cleaner than "Sundown" without losing any of the power of their previous song. It's less sludgy and has a little more of a 90's East Coast feel than a Pacific Northwest sound the previous song did. That's not to say that "What People Say" isn't filled with the remnants of early grunge from bands like Tad and Mother Love Bone, because it certainly is. But it also has some elements of Fugazi and Sonic Youth in here, so I don't think we could possibly be more on board for this one.
You can listen to "What People Say" below. SO LONG will be out January 29 on Inferior Planet. You can pre-order a copy via Bandcamp.
