Track of the day: Hookworms 'Away'

Leeds' Hookworms have unveiled something completely intriguing with this brand new single, 'Away'.

The piece has an incessant soaring intensity, which stretches your expectations with every calamitous drum and explosion of texture. When the spluttering and screeching vocals jet in, you can't help but envisage Bradford Cox.

Self aware, cyclical, and manic in its nature, 'Away' leaves you searching for which part of the British musical landscape Hookworms have emerged from.

This single is taken from Hookworms' debut LP Pearl Mystic, out September 3, one of the most interesting forthcoming UK releases to be released this year.
