Puppy Angst - "Perpetual"

The latest from Philadelphia's Puppy Angst is a beautiful mess. "Perpetual" takes the fuzz that normally takes the forefront on shoegaze and just amplifies it. But while shoegaze tends to be more laid back, "Perpetual" is a much more high energy song. Behind the layer of fuzz, it's almost bouncy with a lot more discordance than you would expect. At times the song seems about to go completely off the rails into chaos, but Puppy Angst pulls it back in just in time. Plus, singer Alyssa Milman has some of the best slacker vocal delivery you've heard in the past twenty years. Before I make "Perpetual" sound like a complete sonic mess, there are some harmonies and even pop elements poking their way through to help make it much more listenable and more interesting.

Alyssa Milman says of their band's new single:

"The darkest of the three singles, 'Perpetual' is about swimming through life, stuck in a dream state, barely there, unable to connect to others. The fast paced, heavier verses careen off into dreamy, hazy choruses, a contrast that kind of reflects what it feels like to wake up from a weird dream." 

You can watch the video for "Perpetual" below. Scorpio Season is due out October 24 and can be pre-ordered through Bandcamp. For more on Puppy Angst, check out the band's Twitter and Facebook.
