Hortlax Cobra "Wasteland"
It's been nearly six years since Peter Bjorn and John released the inexorably catchy indie-pop hit "Young Folks," and the song is literally still stuck in our heads. Now, PB&J drummer John Eriksson is venturing off alone as synth-based project Hortlax Cobra, and will be unveiling his debut LP, Night Shift, under that moniker next month. "Wasteland," one of the album's 10 tracks, is a sparse bit of electronic pop that features multiple layers of synths, intricate percussion, and soft vocals from Eriksson. Night Shift will be released on June 4 through the recently formed Ingrid imprint and artist collective, which, along with PB&J, counts Lykke Li and Miike Snow as members. You can find a streaming sample of Night Shift, along with its complete tracklisting and artwork, after the jump.
