London-based band Sunglasses For Jaws draws us into the endless cycle of questioning and seeking for answers in their latest single “What Does It Look Like.” It’s psychedelic rock built on distorted horns, xylophone splashes, and propulsive chords that keep your head swirling around the groovy cinematic production where the trio pose questions that can drive you to nights of insomnia and madness. The track comes with a video directed by Sam T. Watson – hit play:

Speaking on the new single, Huband said: “We ask questions for the purpose of getting answers, and if your question remains unanswered, you’ll just keep asking the question. Over and over. And we, humans, love to ask questions as much as we like to find answers. ‘What does it look like’ is a broad, vague, all-encompassing question that has a million different answers. Everything can be everything, anything can be anything. It’s a question that speeds into the highway eternally, picking up information and passengers and ideas and thoughts along the way. It’s everything that appears on your tv screen, on billboards, in your dreams, behind your eyes, the incessant overload of visual and psychological stimuli. It’s the coke can and the wet soil, and everything in between. Don’t try and answer this particular question. Trust me. The pursuit is a hell of a lot more fulfilling than the destination.”

The track is from their upcoming album Everybody’s Made Of Bones, which will be out on June 3rd via Pony Recordings.
