A new single and accompanying video has been released by Slothrust called ‘Cranium’. It is the band’s first release since 2019.

Slothrust consists of bandleader Leah Wellbaum with bandmates Will Gorin (drums) and Kyle Bann (bass/keyboards).

“I think of ‘Cranium’ as an absurd mating ritual dance by one of those beautiful complex birds with iridescent tail feathers. Except instead of feathers I am holding family heirloom tweezers and my hands are coated in honey. It’s sweet, but incredibly uncomfortable and definitely overbearing,” Wellbaum said of the new single. “The song is about wanting to serve love but not knowing the “right” way to do so— often offering too much, or something unwanted entirely. It is a promise to love both absurdly and impossibly with a heavy sprinkle of pain.”
