Back in February, garage rockers NE-HI dropped their sophomore album, Offers. Just ten months later, they’re back and with news of a forthcoming 7-inch. It’s due out November 3rd through Grand Jury and features a pair of tracks in “Rattled and Strange” and “Long Time”.
To get their fans hyped, NE-HI are sharing “Rattled and Strange”, a jangling, almost post-punk cut. It comes with a music video that pays homage to dive bars and a particular 1986 Martin Scorsese film.
“When you’re on the road as much as we are, it’s crucial to have something to occupy your time in between gigs,” bassist James Weir elaborated in a press statement. “As dive bar aficionados, the game of pool has become that activity. The ‘Rattled and Strange’ video is an homage to The Hustler sequel aka 1986 pool hall drama The Color of Money. The reason being that it’s about the combination of three of the Earth’s most revered treasures: the game of pool, Chicago, and Martin Scorsese.”

The band will embark on a US tour the same week the new 7-inch hits shelves, sharing the stage with the likes of Whitney and Twin Peaks.
