TOTD: Cheerleader – Bang, Bang
Our latest track of the day comes from Philadelphia-based band Cheerleader with their latest release ‘Bang, Bang’ out today via Bright Antenna Records.
The new release is the first to be taken from the band’s upcoming full-length album which is due later this year. ‘Bang, Bang’ marks the first material from the band in nearly four years, and sees them forge a boldly psychedelic new path. After a three-year hiatus that saw changes within the group’s lineup, The new single marks a triumphant return for a band that has toured the US and UK with a series of critically acclaimed singles and EPs, including their debut album, The Sunshine of Your Youth.
“‘Bang, Bang’ is, in a weird way, about rebirth,” says lead singer Joe Haller. “So, it feels like the perfect song to reintroduce Cheerleader to the world.” With the departure of founding member Chris Duran, the band embraces a more consciousness-expanding direction under the guidance of producer Chris Coady (Beach House, Future Islands). “The song could honestly apply to a million situations where you make a decision that benefits you in the short run, but ultimately is detrimental down the line,” comments Haller.
