Boston indie rockers Vundabar are expected to put out a new album, Smell Smoke, in February. The band’s third following 2015’s Gawk has thus far been teased with “Acetone”, released a few weeks back. Now, a second single in “Diver” has been revealed.

“I wrote it in about five minutes,” vocalist/guitarist Brandon Hagen told FADER, “after two years of impasse and refusal to giving certain feelings shape or acknowledgement. The levy broke and the song is what came out of it. It’s a document of grief, sitting in the wake of loss and taking note of one’s location with acceptance but without resolve.” Echoing its underlying themes, the track juxtaposes moments of tension and catharsis over guitar-driven, Built to Spill-nodding arrangements.

Hear it below.

To coincide with the forthcoming LP, Vundabar have lined up a North American tour for early 2018. They’ll be joined by Ratboys.
