Post-hardcore band SeeYouSpaceCowboy have teamed up with Nothing,Nowhere on their brand new single ‘Rhythm and Rapture’ out now via Pure Noise Records. ‘Rhythm and Rapture’ is a dynamic track that shows a more melodic side to the band’s typically brutal sound – before descending into a mix of guttural screams and shrieking guitars.
“This song was created out of a desire to mix 00’s dancey indie rock like Foals, Cut Off Your Hands, and Bloc Party with a post-hardcore sound,” explains frontwoman Connie Sgarbossa. “We wanted to create a song in a style we’ve never done before that really reflects the variety of what we grew up listening to. Outside of just nostalgia, wanted to make something that was more focused on being dancey and fun like parts we had all the way back in the ‘Songs For The Firing Squad’ era, but with less dissonance and more embracing the joy of simplicity. Even though it sounds like a wild departure it has its roots in stuff we have done with SYSC in the past, just expanded and with a different flavor.”
Nothing,Nowhere adds: “I’m honored to have been a part of this track with SYSC. They’re one of my favorite bands and are always pushing boundaries.”
‘Rhythm and Rapture’ serves as a follow-up to the previous single ‘Chewing The Scenery.’ The songs were produced by Matt Squire (Underoath, Sum 41, The Used) and mark the first new music since SeeYouSpaceCowboy’s second full-length ‘The Romance Of Affliction,’ released in 2021.
