Speedy Ortiz are releasing their new album, Foil Deer, on April 21 via Carpark, and they've now released a second single, "The Graduates." It's got all the makings of a great Speedy Ortiz song, with Sadie Dupuis' clever turns of phrase, quiet-loud dynamics, and intertwining left-field guitar riffs. Plus, you can hear those keyboards they were talking about coming through on this one. Listen below.
Their tour with Krill and Mitski hits NYC on April 25 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show are still available.
