New Silversun Pickups Track!

Silversun Pickups, those brilliant sonic connoisseurs who are releasing their sophomore effort Swoon on April 14, have posted the first single off the album on their MySpace page: "Panic Switch."

It's filled with heavy bass, lush guitars, and of course Brian Aubert's soothingly uneasy voice. Like many tracks off Carnavas, the group's debut LP, "Panic Switch" builds and builds until -- just before all hell breaks loose -- there's a sudden drop to whispered vocals and silent insturmentals, making the final explosive climax all the more sensational. And this is sensational. Looks like the Pickups haven't gone in a new direction with Swoon, only juiced up their old game with the heaps of confidence the success of Carnavas surely must have delivered. Swoon should be a powerful affair.
