Dutch quartet Mozes and the Firstborn keeps our neurons hooked into a constant reflection of pain and joy in their new single “Blow Up.” It’s the type of grunge pop that injects you with the right amount of fuzziness that lifts your spirits, but also keeps you grounded with tints of darkness. Stream below:

“Blow Up” is from the quartet’s upcoming third album Dadcore, which will be out on January 25. They will also start their tour this month, so go holla at them:
