In a time of digital polish and studio patchwork, it has become increasingly rare to hear a record that captures the lightning-in-a-bottle dynamics of a live performance. Music continues to fill our queues, but it feels less and less human, so when a record breaks through the static, it can be a revelation. San Francisco art punks Rip Room have announced that they will release their new record, Alight And Resound, on May 27th via Spartan Records. Ahead of the release the band have shared their new single, Worth Repeating, that is taken from their upcoming full length and is now available via streaming platforms.

“I wanted to be in a fun, high-energy band, but with a math-y, prog edge. We’re always looking to capture our live sound, and with this record, we wanted that plus a little more to emphasize some ideas or sonic feelings. The subject matter is pretty heavy, but the execution is sometimes a bit more lighthearted and dance-y which I think balances it out well. Our sound was once described as ‘dance music for people who don’t like to dance,’ which I don’t agree with — I’d say it’s ‘dance music for people who like to dance but are also bummed out’.”
