Parquet Courts are already running the promo circuit in support of their upcoming fifth LP, Human Performance, due out April 8 via Rough Trade. The NY based lo-fi rockers stopped into Conan last night to drop a new single from the record titled “Berlin Got Blurry,” and fans of the band are going to immediately connect with the jangly guitars and their Velvet Underground inspired delivery. “Berlin Got Blurry” seems to take the band back in the direction of their 2012 release, Light Up Gold, unlike the first single to surface from the new album, “Dust,” which nods more towards their 2014 release Sunbathing Animal. But, both are steps in the right direction for this rising rock outfit, and have us excited for a full stream of the record.
Head below to get a taste of what’s to come, and, if you haven’t already, grab tickets to their May 16 date at Mercy Lounge.
