Trace Mountains has dropped new single “Rock & Roll,” a song that dissects the identity of a rocker while also exploring one’s own existentialism. Coated with edgy riffs comprised of a pinch of haziness, “Rock & Roll” offers an indie rock soundscape to shuffle through your own identity crisis/thoughts:

On his new single, Trace Mountains shared: “I wanted to write a song about rock & roll. One of our favorite bands to listen to in the van is AC/DC, and we made a playlist of songs about being a rocker. I don’t know if this really turned out how I imagined it would – I might have liked a little more machismo. For some reason, I couldn’t just write a simple song about rocking. Maybe it’s revealing of what kind of a rock band Trace Mountains is. We did manage to get a few guitar solos in there though, my favorite of which was played by New York blues guitarist Stew Cutler at the end of the song.”

The song is from his upcoming record Lost In The Country, which will be out on April 10th via Lame-O Records. He’ll also kick off tour in May:
