Small Black

ARTIST / BAND: Small Black

SONG (MP3): "Photojournalist"

ALBUM: New Chain

FILE UNDER:  indie, pop

LABEL: Jagjaguwar

INFO:The internet has been all abuzz about "Photojournalist," the first single off of Small Black's new albumNew Chain (which comes out October 26 in the U.S., October 25 in the U.K.). "Photojournalist" topped the Hot Tracks chart on last week and is currently the most read review on Pitchfork's Forkcast. XLR8R Magazine might have put it best: "While the sound of 'Photojournalist' is thick and filled to the brim with punchy sonics, it's the subtleties of the poignant instrumentation and the heartwarming sentiment delivered by the lyrics that draw us to Small Black's song. Being emotional in music is easy, but being graceful and understated-- while still driving your point home-- is something else entirely."

Starting October 22 Small Black will be driving to your home town as they embark on a month-long U.S. tour that will take them coast to coast. Class Actress will support on all dates, and on specific dates Small Black will also be joined by Delorean, Young Prisms, Lemonade, and Matthew Dear. Before the official tour starts you can also catch Small Black opening for No Age on two dates later this month in Brooklyn and Philadelphia.
