unnamed (8)In just a few days, UK-based lo-fi band Exit Earth will release their first non-bedroom recorded album, Calm Waters. To tide you over until then, and to get a glimpse of what Calm Waters has in store for you, the band has recently released their new song “Sabrina.”

A solid post rock track, “Sabrina” is part Mac DeMarco jangly shoegaze and part Pity Sex post rock, melding together to form a sound that can perhaps best be described as a significantly less angry Nirvana (although certainly just as angsty). This can also be heard in the often repeated lines “I lost my mind again” and “I’m freaking out,” which is a clever tool to use here since there’s not much else to do when you’re losing your mind other than say it over and over again until you’ve figured out what to do about it.

That being said, “Sabrina” also maintains a bouncy beat and a cleaner production than would be expected for a lo-fi group. It’s a welcome juxtaposition, and points to interesting things for the rest of Calm Waters, which will be released on September 9 through Daysleeper Records.
