Boston band Pile have a brand new single on the horizon – it’s coming out on March 11th. Apparently, the band prematurely posted this single up as this was not supposed to be put up until next week but I guess the band changed their minds. The band were quite gratuitous to give us a preview as “Special Snowflakes” is over seven minutes long. With the way the song is structured, it actually seems like two songs. The first forty seconds seem like the band’s about to dive in to some post-rock but after a slight pause Rick Maguire’s croon cracks its whip at the silence. The instrumentation gradually and intensely builds in to a boisterous crescendo and around the four minute mark, the sole guitar is plucked and Maguire comes back in to join it along with the rest of the band. With an ending movement that floats between calm and aggressive, “Special Snowflakes” abruptly cuts off – it could’ve gone on forever. If you’d like to check out some post-punk/post-hardcore goodness, look no further than the Bandcamp player below. See what you think of “Special Snowflakes.” Cheers!
