New Orleans dance punks Special Interest have announced Endure, their first album for Rough Trade, which will be out November 4. The band describe the process for this album as "inverted," as usually they work out songs though live performances, but the pandemic led to new sonic experimentation.
The album includes "Herman's House," which was released earlier this year, and the new single is "Midnight Legend," one of the band's most immediate, danceable songs to date. It features Mykki Blanco, and singer Alli Logout describes it as “a love song to all the girls leaving the club at 6 AM, a love song to everybody who doesn’t have love around them. The ways we numb ourselves or participate in high-risk behavior because we all feel so isolated and alone is also very much enabled by clubs, institutions, and party 'friends.' This song is about listening to people who never actually get heard.”
