Calgary’s Viet Cong — which features ex-members of the great, underrated Women — release their self-titled debut album on Jan. 20 via Flemish Eye/Jagjaguwar (which follows their self-released cassette EP from earlier in 2014). We’ve already gotten a taste of the first single, “Continental Shelf,” which crept into our Top 50 Songs of 2014 list, as a matter of fact. Not a bad start.
Today, Viet Cong has another new track to share from their upcoming album. The track is called “Silhouettes,” and it’s a bit faster and more frantic than the last one. It still rocks, however, and the group is winning us over pretty consistently with their shoegaze-tinged post-punk and noise-rock jams. Have a listen to “Silhouettes” below.
