Choir Vandals may share their name with a song by American Analog Set, but there’s none of that group’s tiny tenderness in “Monsters,” from the forthcoming EP At Night. The song is a mighty, sustained roar: guitars crest and crash like tidal waves, and Austin McCutchen’s voice goes from tense and tentative to full-throated howl in just a fistful of measures. It builds to a feverish conclusion, McCutchen repeating “Around and around and around we go” as the song pitches and kicks and finally collapses, fully, deliriously, fantastically spent.

[At Night will be released on October 28 on 6131 Records]
