Slothrust exemplify how colorful, fun and insightful rock music can be over the course of one song. Need proof? Check out their new jam, "Like a Child Hiding Behind Your Tombstone." The song starts with a great misdirect — singer Leah Wellbaum reflecting over a lilting little acoustic piece — and then drops the elbow. It's an anthemic kind of thing: easy to roll with for a while, but just as the song revs up, it swiftly changes back to the melody. The twists never feel wrong or out of place; "Like a Child" goes with the flow of what feels right at the time, offering both undeniable rockiness and strange metaphor. The best kind of weird.

Check out "Like a Child Hiding Behind Your Tombstone" below, and pre-order their upcoming full-length record Everyone Else on vinyl and iTunes.
