Boston’s The Rupert Selection has released a new pair of singles! “Astronauts” and “Then Again” were first released on streaming platforms late last year during the busy holiday season, and now the Massachusetts trio has made them available to download and purchase for the first time.
Both tracks represent a new era for the band: “Astronauts” is an expansive, towering Psychedelic-Grunge cruiser, while the driving “Then Again” shines with a more refined ’90s Alt-Rock sound.
Guitarist/Vocalist Reilly Somach had the following to say about the new pair of tunes:
“‘Astronauts’ is basically an ode to feeling completely hopeless and trying not to succumb to a world that constantly feels like it is falling apart around you; somehow finding light where there isn’t any. ‘Then Again’ came just from a stream-of-conscious writing, but I think it’s about being brainwashed or really high and paranoid that everyone’s out to get you.”
You can stream both tracks below but make sure you head over to the band’s Bandcamp page and download the tracks too!
