Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed.

Listen to a new song from The Hush Sound, its first in 5 years

Indie pop band The Hush Sound burst out of Chicago with 2005’s So Sudden, releasing two more records before going on hiatus in 2009 and branching out into ancillary groups like Gold Motel. Last summer, though, the band started writing together and some of the resulting material will be available for purchase on the band’s site tomorrow at 12pm EST.

In anticipation of that, as well as to hype the announcement of the band’s first full slate of tour dates in five years, The A.V. Club is hosting one of the band’s new tracks. “Not A Stranger” is total summer festival bait, perfect for lazy Sunday listening on porches right as the sun goes down.
