Not to be outdone by Broken Social Scene, that other Canadian indie-rock collective that just released a new song + album details last Friday, The New Pornographers released its first track off the upcoming Together yesterday. The Twitter description claimed the new song is “quite rocking.”
That’s not a lie.
With grinding guitars and a edict to “put, put, put your hands together,” the song propels me forward, pushes me along, commands me to rock out to some power pop. And I’m definitely not mad at those guy-girl harmonies.
