Just months after the release of the highly-personal Moms, Portland indie rockers Menomena return with “Toomer”, a single plucked off the cutting room floor. The track’s shimmery, wah-wah guitar work and driving percussion radiate a similar musical intensity, while the succinct hook (“I’m a cancer / You’re a tumor”) neatly expands upon the concepts of death and isolation. Stream it below.

“Toomer” b/w “Banyon” is out now via Barsuk Records. The band will continue to tour behind Moms this February, and you can consult the full docket below.
