On October 20, Richmond, Virginia post-punk group Hard Copy release their new album 12 Shots of Nature via Feel It Records. Today, the group has shared the second single from the album, “Airlines,” which pairs a taut rhythmic sensibility with dreamy layers of synthesizers and a sing-speak delivery. It’s a fun and progressively mesmerizing standout that intertwines elements of The Fall and Fear of Music-era Talking Heads along with contemporaries such as Omni and Sweeping Promises. It’s fantastic, and you can hear the new song below.
