The girls of Minneapolis band Is/Is posted a new single, “Hate Smile”, in the form of a YouTube clip. The song has that dark, droned-out, textured sound Is/Is has tailored so well before. The band is so good at balancing rhythmic and melodic elements, underneath all the chaos of clashing cymbals and buzzing guitar noise. Listen to more songs from the band at their soundcloud page, or follow them at facebook. — David D. Robbins Jr.
