A Place to Bury Strangers - "Chasing Colors"

Sonic juggernauts A Place to Bury Strangers have started a 7" singles series of songs outside of the context of albums, and their latest is "Chasing Colors." This new single harkens back to the band's more electronic period. It's electronic experimentation, as this is still A Place to Bury Strangers, but it's surprisingly poppy, especially by the band's standards. If you're new to the band, you'll be shocked to hear this song called "poppy," but pop is very relative. It's still a noisy and discordant song, but comes close enough to 00's sleazecore that "Chasing Colors" could have been a surprise hit if it had only come out at the right time. 

Oliver Ackermann says of his band's new song:

"When looking back at the recordings that were done around the time of See Through You there were a bunch of great tracks that just captured life back then and really had something incredible going on. Even though they are a bit raw and a bit personal, I thought it would be a mistake if they didn't come out. I thought it would be best to go back to my roots and put out a series of 7"s the way A Place To Bury Strangers started. That strange weird format where the tracks each speak for themselves, no album context to muddy the water. These tracks are such a contrast to the way I am feeling now and the current songs we've been working on so slip back into this moment in time.”
