Listen: Blonde Redhead’s unnerving new song “The One I Love”

on August 13, 2014, 3:25pm

“She does nothing all day, but sit down and cry,” Kazu Makino mourns in a half-whisper on “The One I Love”, the latest song off Blonde Redhead’s forthcoming LP, Barragán. Whereas previous album tracks “No More Honey” and “Dripping” showcased more rock balladry and dreamy pop, respectively, the trio’s latest is an exercise in contemplative lo-fi.

Faint rumbles of background noise, coupled with Makino’s eerie, prayer-like vocals, lend “The One I Love” a feeling of both homely comfort and utter despair. Listen/download below.
