Silversun Pickups – Bloody Mary

Silversun Pickups

Starting out like a slow smoldering fire yet to ignite Bloody Mary, the first single from Silversun Pickups new album Neck of the Woods, eases your ear into the overall feel and sound of their latest endeavor.  Lead singer/guitarist Brian Aubert said in a recent interview with Spin magazine that the songs on their upcoming release sound “like a horror movie” and that, on this album, he wanted to explore what built him and made him the way he is.  The track rolls along delivering its creeped out freaky lyrics until you hit the 2:31 mark when you get a heightened mix of bass and guitar with a steadier back beat that combines with haunting vocals that ignite this track and carry it through until its end.

Have a read of this snippet from the track:

You can stay here long enough
We can play with Bloody Mary
Say her name into the dark
Activate our nerve endings

If we can stay here long enough
We can play with Bloody Mary
She can chase us through the dark
Activate our nerve endings 

I’m not listening to this album alone in the dark but I will be listening!  Neck of the Woods is currently available for pre-order from and on iTunes with the album releasing on May 8th which coincides with their performance from the Jimmy Kimmel Live! outdoor stage.
