Iron Chic is one of those bands that, no matter my mood, will get me amped. Take this morning, for instance. I'm sleepy. And maybe sick. And I have, I think, 16 deadlines to meet in the next two days. Maybe 17 deadlines. My brain is filled with pingpong balls that are just bouncing around and smacking into each other. But Iron Chic to the rescue! Their new song "Sounds Like a Pretty Brutal Murder" has the great advice "Unwind! Get high! / Say fuck the world and we're done with it! / Maybe then we can... / Maybe then we can relax!"
(I will interpret that as "get (sugar) high" since I am a no-fun straight-edge kid.)
You can pre-order their album, The Constant One, via Bridge Nine.
I hope I hope I hope this new record means a U.S. tour and a U.S. tour means a Seattle date!
