Today, NYC-based, sister-fronted group, The New Tarot
, release the title track off of their forthcoming EP, God of Science.
The EP is set to drop on August 12th, but don't worry, impatient ones -- you'll be able to stream it in advance via Consequence of Sound
on August 8th.
The Walker sisters, Monika (vocals/guitar) and Karen (vocals/keyboard), continue to deliver clever lyrics reminscent of St. Vincent and psychedelic blends of synth-pop and pounding alternative rock. "'God of Science' pokes fun at people's insistence that we live in a society freer from religious dogma than in the past; when in reality we've just replaced it with things like SPORTS and fun science quips, and money and status," says Karen Walker on the track, which was the only one she wrote for this EP.
Do not sleep on The New Tarot.
