Common Holly has shared a second single off her upcoming album When I say to you Black Lightning, which is due October 11 via Barsuk/Solitaire. The new single is called “Joshua Snakes,” and like lead single “Central Booking,” it sees Common Holly exploring dreamy, off-kilter art pop and coming out with a song that stays accessible while taking all kinds of abrupt, unexpected turns. Here’s what main member Brigitte Naggar told Stereogum about it:

“Is that a rock n roll guitar riff?” my co-producer Devon asked, when I first played him “Joshua Snakes” on an acoustic guitar. Then he wrote down “scary, funky, booty tune” in his notebook.

Listen and watch the Steven Z-directed video below.

Common Holly is opening for Pinegrove on tour this September, including shows in New Haven, Boston, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago, and more; and she also just announced a headlining tour happening after that. The newly-added dates include Princeton, NJ’s Terrace Club on 12/5 and Ridgewood, NY’s Trans-Pecos on 12/6 (tickets). All dates are listed below.
