listen to Ride’s new single “Charm Assault,” their first new music in 20 years
Reunited shoegazers Ride have shared “Charm Assault,” the first new song in over 20 years. It’s from their forthcoming new album which they made with Erol Alkan and Alan Moulder and will be released via Wichita later in 2017. Says Andy Bell, “Charm Assault is a pretty straightforward expression of frustration and disgust at the people who currently run our country. The tour in 2015 was a good way of reminding us what we were good at in the first place and Charm Assault feels like a natural continuation from our peak. When we started writing together again we tried to imagine we’d kept on making music all this time, and this was just the latest one.”
As to where, sonically, “Charm Assault” fits in, it’s post Going Blank Again and pre-Carnival of Light, and bodes well for the new album. Listen below.
