When we featured Something Anorak as a Band To Watch back in December, one half of the British duo, Chris Barrett, told us that some of his favorite albums tend to ebb and flow, a style he consciously incorporates into his own songwriting. Following the release of their debut album Tiny Island, Something Anorak are putting out the Ageist EP very soon. The first single is “I Don’t Want To Work It Out,” which touts laziness via lyrics like “I don’t wanna cut my hair for no one” and “I don’t wanna work no more.” As promised, the track ebbs and flows between lo-fi verses and beachy choruses, ending on an instrumental freakout that gives into a verse without words. Listen below.
The Ageist EP is out 9/4 on Lefse/Fat Possum.
