New York City-based band Parquet Courts have shared their groovy new track “Plant Life” as a single from their forthcoming album. Sympathy for Life, which will be the band’s first album since their 2018 album Wide Awake, is set to be released on October 22.
“Plant Life” is full of upbeat instrumentals and soft-toned vocals. While the song only features a chorus and two verses, the song is attention-grabbing throughout it’s entirety. The first verse reads, “Hanging on a limb flowing from the wind/ Cracking in the night just like a whip/ Run up the plastic commodity/ Domestic rain will sanitize the scene.”
To follow, the chorus reads, “Natural inclination/ Wicked and can stack up pretty quick/ The soil’s got a fever!” As the lyrics come to an end, the song continues with consistent, groovy instrumentals.
