Loveletter - "Dead Weight"

If you loved Loveletter's previous single as much as we did, just wait until you hear their latest. The New York City trio just released "Dead Weight," and it's a sludgy burst of indie rock noise. At some points it sounds like mid-80's Sonic Youth, while at others it sounds like Sleater-Kinney jamming with The Melvins. "Dead Weight" one of those singles that you hear and immediately fall in love with the band. Loveletter are just a force of nature, and if you've ever dreamed of a Sonic Youth/Sleater-Kinney/Melvins supergroup, this is going to work perfectly for you.

Gabriella Zappia says of her band's latest single:

“This is kind of the foundation of Loveletter: heavy sludge, throbbing basslines, fuzz guitar, and massive drums. The contrast in the B part, where the bass takes over the melody, adds some light to shape the darkness. You’ve got to be economical with a 3 piece.”

You can listen to "Dead Weight" below. Testament is due out June 7, and is available for pre-order through Bandcamp. For more on Loveletter, check out the band on Instagram.
