Speedy Ortiz’s “American Horror” isn’t quite as bone-chilling as Jessica Lange’s black magic fright fests, but the track’s still sure to grab your attention with its crunchy furor à la ’90s alt-rock. Much like the band’s previous cut “Everything’s Bigger”, it’s a no-holds-barred look at inner turmoil, an ongoing theme that runs throughout Speedy Ortiz’s forthcoming Real Hair EP (February 11th via Carpark).

“While the last album was kind of a breakup jam, these songs are a lot more introspective — myself dealing with and talking to and making sense of myself,” frontwoman Sadie Dupuis explained in a statement. Listen to “American Horror” below.

Real Hair Tracklist:
01. American Horror
02. Oxygal
03. Everything’s Bigger
04. Shine Theory

The band will be on the road for the next few months, playing alongside Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, Los Campesinos!, Grass Is Green, and more.
