Chicago post-punk duo Gauntlet Hair described their forthcoming sophomore album, Stills, as a “modern salute to Trent Reznor.” Whereas lead single “Human Nature” was more of a nod to the Jesus and the Mary Chain, “Bad Apple” should hit Mr. Reznor right smack in the ol’ ticker. With its stomping drum machine backbeat and whirling synths, the track’s a slightly more poppy take on the industrial grime Reznor churned out in the ’90s. But Andy R.’s vocals are where the final pieces settle, sounding jagged and strangled as they fade off into nothingness.

Stills hits shelves on July 16th via Dead Oceans. Be sure to watch the disturbing video for “Human Nature”, which will leave you with more questions then answers.

Stills Tracklist:
01. Human Nature
02. Spew
03. Simple
04. Bad Apple
05. New To It
06. Obey Me
07. Heave
08. G.I.D.
09. Falling Out
10. Waste Your Art
