Flannel Mouth with new single Oh Bastard available now
The Tallgrass Prairies of Illinois are carrying the sounds of FLANNEL MOUTH (SwitchBitch Records) yet again, this time in the form of a new single entitled “Oh, Bastard.” The song, though independent of an album, showcases the emergence of Flannel Mouth’s ability to write a hard-hitting single whilst staying true to their unique brand of theatric rock, displayed on 2012’s Pull in Your Horns. “Oh, Bastard” finds itself jumping from bouncy, melodic bass lines betwixt a crooning fiddle to a stomping hook surrounded by prog-inspired instrumentals, and it all supplements the dismal story of a boy born to parents with other priorities and the ultimate fates of anyone involved. The vocals are highlighted by guttural emotion and punctuated by barbershop quartet-like harmonies throughout, making this track easily accessible for fans of Cursive, Modest Mouse, Dear & the Headlights, and more.
