ME REX have announced their latest EP, Plesiosaur, which will be out on June 17 via Big Scary Monsters. To mark the announcement, they’ve shared a new single called ‘Jupiter Pluvius’, which is inspired by a 1819 painting by Joseph Gandy. Check it out below.
“Based on the painting of the same name by Joseph Gandy, this song is about images of God in the popular imagination — what that projection of strength and power onto a cold inanimate object says about our expectations and demands of a deity and of ourselves,” the band’s Myles McCabe said in a statement.
Last year, ME REX released their 54-track album Megabear, which they followed up with the Pterodactyl EP.
