The Voidz - "Pointlessness"

New TrackstheneedledropComment

Following the (fraternal) twin lead singles "Leave It in My Dreams" and "QYURRYUS," The Voidz have shared "Pointlessness," the closing track of their sophomore album Virtue. As the title suggests, the song is a bit of a downer in both theme and sonic palette, but judging from this and Tyranny closer "Off to War," it seems the band has a knack for bleak finishers.

Virtue arrives March 30 via Cult / RCA.


The Voidz - "Leave It in My Dreams" / "QYURRYUS"

Fresh off a name simplification, The Voidz have shared the lead single from their upcoming sophomore album, Virtue. "Leave It in My Dreams" is certainly more modest than the epic "Human Sadness," which served as the first taste of the band's full-length debut, Tyranny. This new track actually smacks more of The Strokes than The Voidz, but is ever so slightly more off-kilter and hypnagogic. That said, it's a catchy tune and is more enjoyable than what The Strokes have been up to in recent years. We're optimistic about the new album so long as the band balances out straightforward songs like this one with something more far out...

That's the spice.

Virtue is due out March 30 via RCA and Cult.
