If nothing else, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.’s forthcoming Patterns EP will be the Detroit indie-pop duo at their most brazen. Lead single “If You Didnt See Me (Then You Werent On The Dancefloor)” made it clear they were unafraid of strutting their stuff for the whole world to see, and now “Hiding” furthers that unabashed behavior. Wrapped in the sunny glow of effervescent harmonies, wubbly synths, and heartbeat-esque percussion, the pair make a solid affirmation (“No, I’m not hiding anymore”) against their own self doubts and existential dread. Stream it below.
Patterns will be available digitally April 16th via Warner Bros. Records, then on vinyl with two bonus remixes for Record Store Day (April 20th).
