Spanish quartet Melenas return with a new single and a shift in direction. Though the band’s past albums have been rooted in touches of post-punk and indie, the sound on “K2” lets more than a little German burble into the mix. The song clips along on a propulsive beat, mixing equal love for Neu and Stereolab into their sound. Pushed forward by antiseptic keys and a loping bass, the song is emblematic of the shift that surrounds their third album, Ahora. The new record embraces a love for rhythm and a crispness that’s only been peaking through on past albums. The new record arrives September 29th via Trouble in Mind/Mushroom Pillow. The band pairs the cut with a spooky new video from Iker Insausti.
