mp3: “Photojournalist” by Small Black

Small Black PhotojournalistJagjaguwar keys us in on Small Black’s first full-length.

Last week we announced the first details of Small Black’s first full-length album New Chain due out Oct. 26 in the U.S. and Oct. 25 in the U.K. We are now proud to share the first single “Photojournalist.” The song begins with a lilting sliding beat before dropping into a gorgeous moment of ambient wash. As the lyrics kick in with lead singer Josh Kolenik repeating the refrain “rise up again, like a ghost” the song does just that, growing more concrete in form as Josh’s vocals strengthen, are supported by a chorus, and drums come up in the mix. Layers are added until the song hits maximum velocity only to disappear even quicker than it began.

Small Black are feverishly working to make sure your fall is full of surprises. Stay tuned for new songs, remixes, videos and more as well as fall tour dates including an appearance at the CMJ Music Festival in October.
