Feeble Little Horse - "Steamroller"

Pittsburgh noise pop quintet Feeble Little Horse have released a song that's a perfect pop song for anyone that hates pop. "Steamroller" is much heavier on the noise portion of noise pop than you might expect. There's this fabulous droning feedback throughout virtually all of the song, and it has some of the most fantastically fuzzy guitars, but there is something still kind of pop about it. Back in the 90's this would have been decidedly a rock song, but in 2023 artists aren't afraid of the pop label. I think that's one of the most compelling aspects of "Steamroller." It's noisy, isn't really catchy or hooky, it focuses on guitar and feedback... but it's still somehow a pop song. Feeble Little Horse are one of those artists you're going to want to check out sooner than later.

Lydia Slocum says of her band's new song:

It's a shame song overall. It's my most embarrassing song to sing.
