Pkwy is a garage-y indie rock band from Los Angeles whose first single “Come on Baby, Let’s Go” was featured in many a music blog. This week they dropped a brand new track called “Punisher” and announced the upcoming release of their debut EP Giant.

Whereas “Come on Baby, Let’s Go” was a sparse, minimal indie slow-jam, “Punisher” is uptempo and features lush, shreddy guitar power chords and pummeling percussion. The song opens slowly and slithers along as the instrumentation snowballs and eventually crescendos into a huge, thrashy ending climax. It’s a cathartic garage-rock song with lyrics full of vibrant imagery and heavy on the matter-of-fact slacker vibes: “Slackers are acting tough/ Born in Los Angeles/ Light up a Camel Crush just for fun/ Just for fun…” Overall, it’s an impressive sonic leap forward for pkwy, and a perfect single for those low-stakes summer hang-out vibes.

The band hasn’t yet announced an official release date for Giant yet, but recently indicated that it’s coming out “soon.” .
