The National Rifle Release Second Single, “Glass Line”
A little over a month ago, Long After Dark stumbled upon “Coke Beat,” the first single from Philadelphia-area band The National Rifle’s forthcoming album debut Almost Endless. There have been days since then when the track has been on an endless loop as one of my personal favorite songs of 2012.
On Monday, the band put out the album’s second single, “Glass Line.” A spacier, more electronic-based track than “Coke Beat,” “Glass Line” continues The National Rifle’s strong early output for Almost Endless. Interspersed by brief bits of an up-tempo beat, the track has a mellow electronic flow that is anchored by the mystique of Lynna Stancato’s repetitive lyric, “you want it all.” A solid mid-album song, the LP is most certainly on Long After Dark’s watch list for next year as another potential nugget from a rising Philadelphia indie band.
Almost Endless is set for a January 22nd, 2013 release date.
