[Been Sleeping On] Brand New – Mene

Whoa, Long Island rockers Brand New released their first new material in six years last month but I’m just now getting my first taste. Not cool me, not cool.

“Mene,” premiered on the road in Colorado early April, is at first an in-your-ears rush of hostile noise but through a heightened tempo and palatable progressions this quick hitter gradually develops into a punchy pop-punk euphony. These dudes haven’t missed a beat.

Look for their as yet untitled fifth studio album coming soon to a digital playlist near you, or catch them live this summer.
