Rubblebucket have been throwing eclectic indie dance parties for almost a decade. But it’s been almost two years since we’ve heard new noise from the band, with their latest release being 2014’s Survival Sounds. Thankfully, the Brooklyn outfit is ready to return with a new LP later in 2017, and they’re not going to even make fans wait that long for new music. On January 20th, Rubblebucket will release the If U C My Enemies EP via their own So Sensation Records imprint.
As a first listen to the effort, the band has today shared lead single “Donna”. There’s plenty of grove in the horns and melodies, but there’s also something a bit more psychedelic than usual going on. Over humming, reverberating synths, Annakalmia Traver’s vocals are drenched in echo as she sings, “You were just in my head/ Never heard of a lover like that/ I don’t want to roll with a lover like that.” Take a listen below.
Check out the If U C My Enemies cover art below, followed by Rubblebuckets’ newly announced winter tour dates. They’re sure to be previewing material from both the new EP and LP, so check out the schedule for when they’re coming to your neck of the woods.
