The Chicago band Their/They're/There fuse punk, prog and indie into a distinctive new hybrid. Members Evan Weiss, Mike Kinsella and Matthew Frank – all veterans of other indie-rock groups – show off their sharp dynamic with the tough vocals and interesting ska-meets-metal guitars of their new single, "Concession Speech Writer."

"This is the first song we ever wrote as a group," bassist Weiss tells Rolling Stone. "Oddly enough, it seems to be the most indicative of our styles and attitude as a band."

Their/They're/There's self-titled, six-track EP will be released on April 20th on Polyvinyl.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
