On May 14, Australia’s Prudence—the project of Tom Crandles of dream pop group Au.Ra—will release new EP Untitled. The 7-inch release follows the group’s 2019 debut Tokyo, and last year’s single “Heart Sways,” and today Prudence shares new track “Better,” a hazy and haunting dirge rich in shimmering textures and intoxicating bass grooves. “Better” seems to balance a number of different influences, from ’90s-era shoegaze to ’80s-era goth rock and sophisti-pop—sounds you wouldn’t all expect to hear in the same song. But here they merge together gorgeously in a melancholy and hypnotic whole.

Prudence’s Tom Crandles says in a press release, “In the past couple of years I have taken an involuntary break from music and life in general. Obviously 2020 was one great collective struggle. I decided to print some music as motivation to help find my balance and connect again. This music is a reflection of my year in static.”
