Last week, the Brooklyn indie dance outfit Rubblebucket debuted their single "Carousel Ride" on NPR's All Songs Considered. The song, along with "Sound of Erasing"
, is one of two tracks dropped by the group ahead of the August 25 release of their third full-length album with Communion Records, Survival Sounds
. It's a bittersweet mixture of frenetic, wavering synths and melodic horns, as frontwoman Kalmia Travers sings about impending doom with unflappable optimism: "Round and round and round I go / Hoping for a miracle / I got no place to run and hide / Guess I'll take a spin on the carousel ride."
