With their highly-anticipated new album set to land at the end of this month, Xiu Xiu have now returned to share the next cut lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Rumpus Room' sees them team up with Liars' Angus Andrew for the release, and follows on from the previously unveiled track 'A Bottle of Rum' ft. Liz Harris in previewing their collaborative LP 'OH NO', which is out on the 26th March via Polyvinyl.
Speaking about the new offering, the duo's Angela Seo said, "Does everyone have a deep personal childhood association with Flamin' Hot Cheetos, or just me? One of the first things I shoplifted as a kid was a bag of FHC. I once bet my cousin I could finish an entire Party Size bag in one sitting; I won the bet but lost my sense of taste for a couple days. I was a latchkey kid and would ditch school and often go to the 7-eleven by our apartment, where some 20 year old kid who didn't give a crap would be working and watch me play their single arcade game- Marvel vs. Capcom - in the corner as long as I bought a slurpee and FHC. Sometimes in my old teenage journals, I find flamin' red dusted fingerprint smudges among melodramatic poems and fake runaway notes. All that intersected perfectly with the "Rumpus Room" song, and part II story of the video trilogy (1st being "A Bottle of Rum")."
