This is how to make your press shot stand out
It takes a certain kind of courage to release a six-and-a-half-minute opus as the first single from a new album. This is the kind of hubris usually reserved for Oasis and, er, Death Cab for Cutie. Still, there’s nothing bloated about Women‘s “Eyesore,” a twisty prog rocker with lots of starts and stops and chiming arpeggios.

“Eyesore” is the final track on Public Strain, due out on September 28 via Flemish Eye/Jagjaguwar.
