Speedy Ortiz Announce “Real Hair” EP

Speedy Ortiz Announce the release of their "Real Hair" EP , the EP comes out February 11th on Carpark Records. Speedy Ortiz play December 11th in Iowa City.

Speedy Ortiz and Carpark Records have announced the forthcoming Real Hair EP due out on February 11th. The first single, “Everything’s Bigger”, can be streamed and shared via Soundcloud above. Last week, the band also debuted the video for summer hit “No Below (which can be seen here) and announced a lengthy string of tour dates keeping them on the road well into the spring in support of both Major Arcana and Real Hair. See below for dates!

On Real Hair, the band sets a course between the knotty discord of debut album Major Arcana and the pop bonafides of the preceding Sports EP. Recorded and mixed by Paul Q. Kolderie (Pixies, Radiohead), the new EP finds them subtly adding new techniques to their songbook.

From the vocal melodies to the no-nonsense guitar turns, Speedy draws inspiration from contemporary Top 40 and R&B radio in addition to their regular arsenal of guitar rock. Dupuis’ lyrics continue to address concerns about identity, representation, and their misalignment, this time from a new angle: “While the last album was kind of a breakup jam, these songs are a lot more introspective-myself dealing with and talking to and making sense of myself,” she says.
