On April 8, Chicago group OR will release their new album Pariah via Dog & Pony Records. The group features musicians who have played with Joan Of Arc, Ghosts And Vodka, American Heritage, Sidekick Kato and more veteran midwest indie groups, and today they’re sharing a new track from the album, titled “Vulgarian.” It’s a hard-hitting instrumental in line with the band’s pedigree, somewhere between post-hardcore and post-rock, driven by tense rhythms and dynamic shifts, melodic but abrasive riffs and unexpected harmonies and hypnotic leads around every corner. It rocks hard, but elegantly and with a continuous sense of adventure as it goes.

The band’s Erik Bocek says in a statement about the song, “‘Vulgarian’ was the first song we wrote as a band. It’s a good example of our linear song structures which is more attuned to telling a story than a pop song. The title was chosen as a response to the Trump/Putin hysteria that is sadly becoming an unwelcome and unwanted norm.”
