Mates of State
is teasing us with a brand new track off of their upcoming album Mountaintops
. It's called "Maracas" and their giving it away for free. The name is appropriate, especially if your bobbing head is full of dried beans. "Maracas" has just the right amount of electronic-influence pumped into an authentic shell of a melody glazed with non-cliche lyrics. A bit of a pop complex exists here, but its the handle that makes these "Maracas" worth downloading.
will be released September 13 as the seventh studio album for the husband and wife duo. It'll be the first LP featuring music written by them since 2008, and based on what we've heard with "Maracas", and seen with their new music video
, they still got it.
