We absolutely loved The Beths's 2018 album Future Me Hates Me. Its blend of pop tinged indie rock is kind of one of our sweet spots here, and no one nailed it quite like they did. 2020's Jump Rope Gazers leaned a little more towards pop, and was still fantastic. Now, the New Zealanders are back with a new song that changes up their sound a bit more. "Silence is Golden" straight up rocks. Indie rock doesn't usually rock out this hard, but we couldn't be more here for it. It's an oddly hypnotic swirl of guitars and includes a guitar solo that sounds like got completely loose and away from them, but they kept it on anyway. And The Beths pull all this off along with staying as poppy and fun as they've always been!
You can watch the video for "Silence is Golden" below. Expert in a Dying Field is due out September 16 on Carpark Records. For more on The Beths, check out the band's website.
