Driven by the kind of proggy pulse Jagwar Ma channel so well, “The Road” is all about build and release: palm-muted guitars and chugging beats erupting into a wall of root-note distortion and crashing cymbals. Chris Bainbridge meanders his gorgeous husk between all the track’s heady components in perfect contrast to the astounding amount of noise this pair can make.

“The Road” is everything we want to hear in a first single: confident, catchy and a beautiful assault on the ears.
