Lower Dens (which is led by singer/songwriter Jana Hunter) are releasing a new album, The Competition, on September 6 via Ribbon Music. Now they have shared another song from the album, “Galapagos,” via a lyric video for the track. Check it out below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Previously Lower Dens shared a video for The Competition‘s first single, “Young Republicans” (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Then they shared another song from the album, “I Drive,” also via a video for the track (it was also one of our Songs of the Week).

The Competition is the follow-up to 2015’s Escape From Evil. A previous press release said The Competition “might be Hunter’s most vulnerable, hook-filled album yet, a leftfield, resistance pop record that could only be released in 2019.”

Hunter had this to say about the album in the previous press release: “The issues that have shaped my life, for better or for worse, have to do with coming from a family and a culture that totally bought into this competitive mindset. I was wild and in a lot of pain as a kid; home life was very bleak, and pop songs were a guaranteed escape to a mental space where beauty, wonder, and love were possible. I wanted to write songs that might have the potential to do that.”
