Boston trio Krill are streaming ‘Foot’, taken from their forthcoming album A Distant Fist Unclenching, released February 16th 2015. A wiry and feverish listen, the track is a lyrically compelling exploration of desire, backed by typically unpredictable yet controlled songwriting.

The forthcoming album A Distant Fist Unclenching is Krill’s most considered release so far, however it never loses the idiosyncrasies that have seen the band praised from the likes of Pitchfork, NME and BBC 6Music. Across its nine songs, the albums existential examinations tread the fine line between complete control and unravelling anxiety.

Having toured the US extensively, playing shows with the likes of Deerhoof, Speedy Ortiz, Big Ups and The Thermals, Krill begin their first ever European tour on February 23rd. Tickets for shows are available now.

A Distant Fist Unclenching is released on download and vinyl via Steak Club (UK) [pre-order] on February 16th.

Praise for Krill

“… nervous, wiry grunge treads a tightrope walk between screwball hilarity and moments of devastating melancholy” NME

Krill’s songs will reach anyone living in a state of hopelessness and make them feel like conquering the world. Here’s hoping these guys do” Stereogum

Furman yanks on every line’s final word with a manic drawl that suggests a man sprinting between walls to bash his head against them” Pitchfork

stuffed with the kind of yelpy, jangly, nasal rawk anthems that keep college radio stations permanently turnt” Noisey

Krill’s rankled jangle recalls Modest Mouse or Built to Spill, but with Doug Martsch being treated for rabies: excitable and spastic, but with half a mind still able to focusConsequence Of Sound
