On May 3rd, 2019, Seattle group Versing will release their Hardly Art full-length debut 10000, an album that fuses lustrous noise and ebullient melody. The band’s first offering, “Tethered,” is a low-key, Daydream Nation-esque anthem with plenty of dissonance and surging, distorted guitars, plus rhythms that drive piles. Frontman Daniel Salas explains that it’s “about how people are tied together,” figuratively. “It’s a reminder of the interconnected-ness of humans, to people who make excuses for not doing the right thing” for the greater good of humanity.
