"CC" is a sex song, plain and simple. The latest from Atlanta based "grunge-channeling feminist punks" have done the nearly impossible with their sex song. It's not leering, or dirty, or even shocking. Despite being a song that's undeniably a sex song, it's surprisingly sweet. Maybe even shockingly so. It's reminding me a lot of an artist like TORRES in that way, both in sound and tone. Of course, it's a bit more aggressive than you'd typically get with TORRES, so it adds more than a little of a band like The Gits into the mix. SMALL are quickly becoming one of the most intriguing bands around these parts lately, and we can't wait for their full length to come out this Friday.
You can listen to "CC" below. Decathexis is due out September 30 on Triphouse Records. For more on SMALL, check out the band's Bandcamp.
