NYC’s post-punk / shoegaze outfit A Very Special Episode released their sophomore EP “Cut for Time”.
The band defies genre boundaries, blending elements of post-punk, noise rock, and alternative rock, to ethereal shoe-gaze tones all with a hint of glam-pop attitude. The release comes as their first under Knuckle Down Records, whom the band signed with earlier this spring. “Cut for Time” is out everywhere today and available in physical vinyl and CD format.
On this release, the band shared:
“The goal of the EP was to create definitive versions of several of our songs that started as bedroom demos along with a couple new ones. ‘Gravity’ and ‘Still Here’ mostly remained the same with a faster tempo and higher production quality. ‘Crazy’ was radically transformed from a slow ballad to a as-fast-as-we-can punk track. ‘On Our Own Again’, if not obvious from the title, was a bottom up reimagining of Censored Dreams’. ‘On Our Own’ that ended up being completely its own thing. ‘Invitation to Delete’ is then our most pure new song that was created as a cathartic response to toxic social and political discourse online.”
