Too often do newly formed supergroups lose sight of their aspirations and ambitions, yet New York based quartet Public Practice reign in their individual strengths with their upcoming debut EP, Distance is a Mirror. Including members from post-punk act WALL and dream-pop band Beverly, singer Sam York, guitarist Vince McClelland, synth/bassist and vocalist Drew Citron, and drummer/programmer and producer Scott Rosenthal combine stark yet danceable grooves in their lead single, “Fate/Glory”. York’s smoky vocals chant over convulsing guitars, a twist on one’s perception and chock full of pleasurable contradictions as it bounces from steady hooks to a final surge of energy in the track’s two and a half minute time span. Stream “Fate/Glory” below and pre-order Distance is a Mirror, due out on Wharf Cat Records on October 26th.
