The Mars Volta have split and At the Drive-In’s reunion came and went, but Omar Rodríguez-López has been hard at work with his new group, Bosnian Rainbows. Their new song “Turtle Neck” shimmers with wavy, lush guitars and unhurried percussion before shifting to sprawling textures and morphing tempos. It cuts loose in the second half, turning into a spacey post-hardcore assault of jagged chords and gut-punching drums.
“Turtle Neck” is on Bosnian Rainbows forthcoming debut album, out this spring. They’ll hit the road for two weeks starting February 15th in Atlanta and continuing through February 28th in Minneapolis, before playing the Mexico City’s Foro Sol on March 15th.
