On June 10th, Oklahoma indie rockers Broncho are set to return with their third studio album, Double Vanity. Ahead of its release date, the 11-track effort is streaming in full below.
According to a press release, Double Vanity is a “gleeful departure from 2014’s hook-laden breakthrough, Just Enough Hip To Be Woman,” with the band “shifting gear and cruising through a haze of atmospheric garage rock textures, dark, jagged reverbs and androgynous, elastic vocals.” Frontman Ryan Lindsey added that the album is far more high-energy than its predecessors, but in a really careful way.
“The goal was to slow things down but still have as much energy, and in a lot of ways I think Double Vanity has more energy than our previous records,” he said. “Maybe it’s more of an emotional energy. Not necessarily lyrically, or idea-wise, but melodically and sound-wise. There’s more emotion to me when I hear this record than there was on our previous records.”
In support of the album, Broncho has announced a series of U.K. and European dates for late September and early October. Consult the full schedule follow the album player.
