Origami Angel Drop Gritty New Track “Thank You, New Jersey” Ahead of US Headline Tour

Origami Angel reinvent themselves once again with an ode to a shitty summer vacation in “Thank You, New Jersey” via Counter Intuitive Records. The DC two-piece are constantly transforming. Last fall the duo released two EPs spanning across entirely different soundscapes, showing their versatility in song writing. With the acoustic re:turn, and hardcore DEPART, this new track snuggles right into the middle. It showcases the bands ability to highlight all the most coveted pieces of creating a good alternative rock song. The song is coated in the technical aspects of math rock, the confined chaos of hardcore, all while nodding to the groove of surf rock. It is simultaneously a pop-punk infused journey with a catchy chorus.

Origami Angel partnered with director Bob Sweeney to bring fans a goofy, green screened filled visual to accompany the new track. The video feels like the loading screen to create a character in your favorite Nintendo video game, or a late night 90’s television show on Adult Swim. The band are doing what they do best, having an absolute blast. If fans like what they see in the video, they can expect the same energy on the duo’s nearly sold out headline tour of the US kicking off next week. Pinkshift and Sweet Pill will be joining as support. Check out the music video and dates below, and grab tickets here.
