You never know where inspiration may strike. The New Lines and DC band Sansyou have a new collaborative single, "Gowanus Canal Field Inspection," which was a direct result of an actual visit to the titular Brooklyn body of water by Sansyou's David Nicholas, who shared his thoughts on it with The New Lines' Hewson Chen. Conversation, lyrics and music flowed like dirty water and here we have it, a jangly two-minute pop number which premieres in this post. Stream it below.

The New Lines and Sansyou will play NYC on October 27 at The Rock Shop, a Halloween show also featuring Winkie and Prima Primo. Then in December, The New Lines will head out with Dead Leaf Echo for a weekend tour that includes stops in Philadelphia and DC. All dates are listed, along with the new single stream, below...
