DOWNLOAD: Somos - Dead Wrong (MP3)


With the accessibility of music on the internet, not many bands really need to make "demos" anymore, but that didn't stop Boston's Somos from calling these four songs recorded in 2012 a demo. Some nerve of them too, considering the sharp hooks and sharper musicianship that went into these songs would put tons of "actual albums" to shame. On the strength of that release, it's no wonder they got picked up by Tiny Engines (Little Big League, Cayetana, The Hotelier), who will release their debut LP, Temple of Plenty, on March 25. That album's new single, "Dead Wrong," is at least as strong as the stuff on their demo, bringing bits of punk, emo, and indie into a mix that rocks pretty hard. You can download that track for free above, or stream it, with the LP artwork and tracklist, below.

Somos are also going on a tour this year which includes a run with their labelmates Save Ends. That run brings the two bands to Chicago on April 15 at Subterranean. Tickets for that show are not on sale yet, but you can check Sub-t's site for updates.
