song: "Tethered" - Versing
It’s not exactly a secret that we love Versing, and after eternally crossing our fingers for more new material, the band has returned with “Tethered,” the first single from an upcoming Hardly Art release. The track stands as the group’s first from an upcoming May release, and true to the band’s form, the song is restless and quickly changeable. A repetitious guitar pattern and nearly spoken proclamations of being tied together shift into calamitous noise; the band later bending their guitar work for a moment of experimentation and full on force. It’s a track you can easily get lost in, the expanse of guitar and thumps of percussion leading you into the unknown, and as the band declares in the beginning, “One day the timing will be clear/until then it’s nothing to be feared.” Sit back and enjoy the ride.
