Philadelphia-based band Remember Sports have revealed plans for a new album called Like a Stone, which comes out on April 23 through Father/Daughter (US) and Big Scary Monsters (UK). Speaking about the themes of the album, singer Carmen Perry says:
“Like a Stone references something that’s slipping away, or sinking down into your brain to a place you can’t find. The hard songs are guilt and anger coming out of me, and the soft songs are forgiveness.”
Lead single “Pinky Ring” is one of the ‘hard’ songs, comprising bustling guitars that underpin Perry’s furrowed thoughts as she questions “wasn’t I good to you?” Remember Sports keep winding the angst tighter and tighter, Perry’s proclamations getting more frazzled, until they let loose in the bounce-along chorus, an excoriating and cathartic thrill. “Pinky Ring” is set to be the opener of Like a Stone, and a devastatingly purposeful one it is too.
