Based in Los Angeles, the Attic Ends have been honing their ethereal indie rock sound since 2010 and are now gearing up to release their latest EP, 'Stripped -- A Live Recording.' As you might glean from the disc's title, 'Stripped' finds the Attic Ends in a more vulnerable state than their previous releases; in fact, it's that vulnerability that leads to some of the most transformative songs we've heard in a long time.

Starting today (Feb. 12), Diffuser is excited to team up with the Attic Ends for three weeks of 'Stripped' premieres. The first track we're excited to unveil is the absolutely beautiful 'Insanity.' You can listen to it in the audio player below.

"'Insanity' is one of those songs that basically wrote itself," frontwoman Samantha Rex tells us. "I was feeling as if I were caught in the movie 'Groundhog Day' -- I kept repeating the same actions but some how expecting a different result ... the definition of insanity."

She goes on, "The first verse explains the insanity we feel when we love someone who we can not change, yet we try and try to for some crazy reason. The defeatism and beauty that comes along with the 'letting go' is liberating. The second verse is about how we spend our day, our work, and why we think somehow magically it will all change without actually making a change."

Rex's advice? "If you are unhappy with your lover or job, you must be brave enough to change your situation. We love this song -- it hits close to home with the whole band," she concludes.

The Attic Ends are planning a string of new tour dates for 2015, so stay tuned for those details. In the meantime, if you find yourself on the west coast Friday night (Feb. 13), swing by the Hotel Cafe to catch the band live -- get details at their official website here.
