New Tunes: The Pilgrims, "Duck and Cover"

Posted By on Wed, Jun 12, 2013 at 2:38 PM

After shaking and stomping to the new Persian Claws record all week, we're officially in summer music mode. Now, if only summer would cooperate and actually show up, eh? In the meantime, here's a new cut from cheeky Upper Valley punks the Pilgrims that we'll (hopefully) be blasting in the ol' ear buds at the beach from now until Labor Day.

The song, "Duck and Cover," is the first single from the band's new album, Buss, due out on Windsor-based label What Doth Life in July. The record is a followup to their underrated but wholly excellent 2011 debut, Nobility, and 2012's equally cool It's Not Pretty. 

The new track is a scraggly little pop gem with subtle shades of early Ted Leo and the Pharmacists. And it portends very good things for the new album. Or as the band's Brendan D'Angelo put it in a recent email, "It's kinda catchy and rusty. Like tetanus!" Yup.
