Oranges - Snow Monkeys (So You Think This is a Fucking Game?)

     Want some more new music? Of course you do! It's why you're here, isn't it? Don't answer that.

     Today's short, sharp new song comes from new Blue Swan signing Oranges, and if you know anything about Blue Swan (founded by Dance Gavin Dance's Will Swan) or the label's current roster (which includes bands like Eidola and Hail the Sun, to name just two) you should be able to extrapolate from that to something resembling a vague idea of what Oranges is all about: high-energy, technically-above-par, ever-so-slightly-proggy post-hardcore that fucking goes.

     Suitably post-hardcorishly-titled new single "Snow Monkeys (So You Think This is a Fucking Game)" is three minutes of this particular post-hardcore brew that succeeds in tickling my fancy. Regular readers will know the soft spot I've got for this kind of stuff (including the aforementioned Dance Gavin Dance, Eidola, and Hail the Sun), so I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for this one when it drops in about a month or so.
