Indie pop duo, Mates of State, are planning to drop their new album, Mountaintops, this September and to hold you over until then, you can get a new tune for free, below.
"Maracas" is an upbeat, slurring synth tune that seems to have one main goal, to make you dance! With shaking maracas (hence the name), popping drums and layered vocals galore, this Mountaintops track is definitely a way to get you interested in the forthcoming record.
Get "Maracas" via the widget below.
You can also catch Mates of State on the road this fall with Suckers, Other Lives and Yawn on select dates.
Mountaintops arrives September 13th on Barsuk Records.
