Kindling - "Destroy Yrself"

For the life of me I can't figure out how I started paying attention to Easthampton, MA's Kindling, but their newest song makes me thrilled I stumbled onto them at some point in the past. "Destroy Yrself" is an absolutely epic shoegazey song. The track starts off with this furious, bouncy, swirling fury, and just goes from there for about two minutes. There's an epic false start, where the song trails off. It will actually make you angry that you began to love it so much, just to have it end. And then the song takes back off, only to begin trailing off again. Finally it just erupts back in full force as what is almost a full fledged arena anthem. Of course, then it abruptly ends, crashing you back down into reality and desperate for more. 

You can listen to "Destroy Yrself" below. Kindling's latest album, Hush, will be out November 10. You can pre-order it via Bandcamp, with $1.00 of all pre-order sales going to Partners in Health. For more on Kindling, check out their website.
