Mallbangs, the project of Atlanta musician Aidy, has announced a new EP titled Checking For Daggers. It’s set to arrive on October 14, and its first single, ‘New Face’, is out today. Check it out below.
The follow-up to 2021’s Put Me Out EP, Checking For Daggers was produced by Grouplove’s Daniel Gleason. “‘New Face’ is about different sentiments of a friend who passed away in 2020 who had struggled with drug abuse; just sort of a way to express feelings surrounding that,” Aidy explained in a statement. “Musically it’s a crazy one because all the parts were there in the original demo. It was when we added Daniel’s bass line and Benjamin’s drumming that it just exploded the way it does now. This was a really fun one to work on. We ended up using this prototype guitar from Mike Baranik that Daniel was loaned for a while. That weird, muted guitar part in the verse is where you can really hear it because it has this cool piece attached to the bridge that makes things sort of sound like a sitar.”
