Listen: Lifeguard – Alarm

On July 7th, Matador / Remote Control Records will release Crowd Can Talk / Dressed in Trenches, a composite of two EPs by Chicago trio Lifeguard. Today, listen to the new single ‘Alarm’ and watch the band blaze through the song in a live session recorded by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio.

Formed in 2019, Lifeguard are Asher Case (bass, vocals), Isaac Lowenstein (drums, percussion), and Kai Slater (guitar, vocals). At its core, Lifeguard is a punk band. Their music is loud and energetic. It’s also, at its core, visceral and hypnotic. For the Chicago- based trio that can include repetition and blasts of speaker cone-shredding feedback. Their songs adeptly balance melody and chaos, rhythm and drone.
