Hookworms are set to release their third studio album, Microshift, on the 2nd of February via Domino. To prepare your ears for what’s to come they’ve now shared their second single from the album with us – it comes in the form of Static Resistance.
A trance inducing tune that’s filled with highs and low’s as the man in the video simply tries to keep his head above the water. If this new track and the last offering they gave us , Negative Space, are anything to go by then we know for sure that Hookworms are going to take 2018 by storm with a new, reinvigorated dance-psych sound.

When speaking of the new track the band said “It’s a song about the wax and wane of depression and an eternal want to escape the life you’ve built.” they continue “Static Resistance is the oldest track on the album, we wrote and recorded the first version of it early 2015, not very long after The Hum had been released,”. With this in mind, Microshift, may really be shifting it’s sound throughout.
