Parquet Courts share new song “Berlin Got Blurry” and video — watch

A Western roller from their new album, Human Performance


    Parquet Courts are set to return on April 8th with their new record, Human Performance, via Rough Trade. After sharing “Dust” and “Outside”, the band today has unveiled another new album cut in “Berlin Got Blurry”.

    The song once more demonstrates the band’s shambling garage sound, this time delivered with a guitar strain that feels like it rolled out of a Western flick. Bass shimmies along and an electric organ blows pleasantly for what might be one of the poppier songs in Parquet Courts entire catalog. “Berlin got blurry/ And my heart started hurtin’ for you,” goes the sweet little couplet of the first chorus.

    Check it out via the Claes Nordwall-directed video, in which frontman Andrew Savage wanders Berlin, below.
