Last month, Philly two-piece Girlpool announced Powerplant, a new LP the band describes as embracing a “devastating emotional pragmatism.” That emphasis is clear in their latest single, “It Gets More Blue”, which exudes a sepia-toned melancholy without sacrificing the urgent riffage of the band’s sound.
Directed by Amalia Irons from a concept by the band’s Harmony Tividad, the accompanying music video sets outsized emotional theatrics and dimestore costumes against a hazy, lo-fi milieu. Watch it above.
Powerplant drops on May 12th via ANTI- Records.
The band has also announced opening acts for its upcoming summer tour. They include rising artist Vagabon, Frankie Cosmos side project Lexie, Baltimore trio Snail Mail, and Brooklyn rockers IAN SWEET.
