Protomartyr share new single “Born To Be Wine” — listen

on August 03, 2016, 2:00pm

Last October, Protomartyr released their astonishing record,The Agent Intellect. Today, the post-punk rockers are back with a new one-off in the form of “Born To Be Wine”.

The track took only two days to write and record, a process which took place at Chris Koltay’s Hi Bias Studio in Detroit. “The title comes from mishearing a Frenchman talking about his favorite rock and roll songs, while the lyrical sentiment takes in louche, elder rockers confined to man caves and a list of fearsome things that were ruminated on during a particularly dire phone interview,” frontman Joe Casey said in a press release.

To begin, “Born To Be Wine” slinks on in carefully crafted form, before deconstructing into a blur of distortion that only settles down for the chorus. The track is the most recent product of Adult Swim’s Summer Singles Series, which boasts the tagline “25 weeks. 25 tracks.”
