    Philly-based indie rock band The Districts are finally back with their first new song since their 2015 album A Flourish and Spoil. It's hard not to fall in love with the rumbling intensity of "Ordinary Day," mixed by John Congleton (Angel Olsen, St. Vincent), when it boasts a sound so similar to the one we fell in love with when we first heard the band.

    Although it delivers such a nostalgic feeling, the band is emitting a whole new confidence we've never seen before. Frontman Robby Grote is singing differently and the music is more intense than ever. Grote explained the song in a press release, "'Ordinary Day' deals with a sort of personal alienation and the realization that you and the world you've existed in have changed. Sort of the feeling of coming through a tunnel and having no way of relating to things in the same way as before. It was written in late summer/early fall and came together quite naturally... Personal lives were in flux and we were sitting around Philly losing our minds."

    The song is off of their forthcoming album set to drop later this year.
