Joanna Gruesome have shared the second single from their upcoming Peanut Butter LP, a pressure-cooked indie pop tune that’s catchy and caustic in equal measure. Which makes sense considering what guitarist Owen Williams said in a press release recently:

We tried to make it shorter, more economical and attempted to pack as many hooks and screams in as quickly possible in order to avoid short changing the consumer or wasting her/his/their time. Lyrically it’s more obtuse and surreal but also attempts to mock trad masculine rock themes whenever things do get more lucid. But sometimes musically we embrace them by doing embarrassing guitar solos.
