Thrice have unveiled Robot Soft Exorcism, the second track to be taken from forthcoming 11th album, Horizons/East.
Opening with a bit-crushed electronic intro, RSE builds into a 7/8 arpeggiated guitar line that wouldn’t sound out of place on Radiohead’s latter-day work, while a stomping chorus, filled with chunky single-coil lines and smart riff variations, nods towards the band’s post-hardcore roots.
The track marks the second release from the California outfit’s upcoming full-length, following last month’s time signature-shifting effort, Scavengers.
As Thrice continue to push their unique brand of alt-rock ever further, the release is set to feature jazz-inspired quartal chords and the transformation of the Fibonacci sequence into a guitar riff. Rad.
Horizons/East is out on September 17 and available to preorder now (opens in new tab).
