Brooklyn trio Grooms are releasing a new album, Exit Index, on October 20 via Western Vinyl. Previously they shared the album’s first single, “Turn Your Body.” Now here’s another song from the album, the shoegaze-y “Magistrate Seeks Romance.” Listen below, followed by “Turn Your Body.”

Grooms (singer/guitarist Travis Johnson, drummer Steve Levine, and bassist Jay Heiselmann) recorded Exit Index at the famed New York recording studio The Magic Shop, which has hosted sessions with David Bowie and Lou Reed, among many others, and they were the last band to record there before it closed down last year. Collin Dupuis (Angel Olsen, Lana Del Rey) mixed the album. A press release describes the album as such: “On Exit Index the band combines the abandon of pop with the unease of American life in 2017, cloaking its hooks in a clamor of samples and distortion, its agitation expressed in its dream-poetry lyrics.”
