Rubber Blanket is a new group comprised of former Wounded Lion members Brad Eberhard and Jun Ohnuki, and The Intelligence‘s Lars Finberg. The trio pull from a bunch of weirdo influences, including skronky no-wave and robotic cling-clang post-punk, free jazz, spoken word cult artist Ken Nordine, The Television Personalities (who they cover) and more. Their debut album is out March 6 via Space Case Records and we’ve got the premiere of its slightly demented first single, “Scented Candle,” where they wonder “Can you make loneliness sound sweet?” Maybe someone can. The video, directed by Megan Koester and featuring a parade of the song’s instruments (including a variety of cheap ’80s synthesizers) does a lot on a budget. Watch that below.
