Brooklyn-based MOTHXR has been on my radar since I included the four-piece band in a larger-than-average #PromisingPop feature I did back at the beginning of last month. It was their sultry 80s-inspired single “Stranger” that first captured my attention, but now with the release of a new buzz-track called “She Can’t Tell” I am 100% ALL in. Listen to MOTHXR‘s hazy, haunted synth-riddled scorcher up at the top.
Produced by the bands’ own Jimmy Giannopoulos, “She Can’t Tell” is the latest track taken from MOTHXR‘s upcoming debut album, Centerfold, due February 26th via Washington Square Records/Kitsune. The band consists of lead singer (and actor) Penn Badgley, bassist/producer Giannopoulos (LOLAWOLF, Reptant), guitarist Simon Oscroft and keyboardist Darren Will.
If you happen to be in or around the New York City area, MOTHXR is playing a album release show at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn on February 26th (Tickets). You can also catch them on tour this Spring when they join Polica on a tour that kicks off April 14th in Madison, WI. For a list of tour dates, check BELOW. Pre-order Centerfold here.
