Hospitality Showcase Darker Sound on ‘I Miss Your Bones’
Fans of Hospitality’s bubbly 2012 self-titled debut might be thrown for a loop by ‘I Miss Your Bones,’ the lead-off single from the Brooklyn trio’s forthcoming sophomore album, ‘Trouble.’ The tune, which is streaming below, isn’t without its hooks or catchy bits, but it’s rougher and more aggressive than, say, ‘Friends of Friends,’ and that salty-sweet blend flavors the entire set.
“Most of the songs are about everyday environments that arouse anxiety or unease,” singer Amber Papini says in a press release. “The ocean isn’t meant for people; we aren’t supposed to be there, and some of the animals that live there are much bigger and faster than we are in the water. I think a lot of the songs deal with this ‘out of place’ kind of theme, feelings of unease and the questions of what is under you or what surrounds you.”
‘Trouble’ comes your way Jan. 28 on Merge.
