Guerilla Toss

What Would the Odd Do? was born from bandleader Kassie Carlson’s opiate-related near death experience. This is the band’s second release since Carlson’s recovery, but the first to address the situation head-on. The EP’s second single “Future Doesn’t Know” is a triumphant look forward with a more rock-oriented edge than its predecessor. Recalling the chiptune power pop of their peers Crying as much as the godfatherly wonk of Deerhoof, “Future” could only be found in the middle of a Guerilla Toss album.

On their new EP What Would The Odd Do?, the art-rock experimentalists Guerilla Toss are addressing a crisis from a deeply personal angle. Upon the release of lead single “Plants,” Kassie Carlson opened up about the addiction that resulted in open-heart surgery to remove a blood clot. “Statistically, women are more likely to hide addiction and keep feelings inside, making it potentially much more festering and toxic,” she wrote. “Drugs affect people of all backgrounds, regardless of race, class or gender. Addiction hits us all, and it hits hard.”

The band shares the EP’s second single, “Future Doesn’t Know.” It’s one of the poppiest songs Guerilla Toss have ever released, yet still fried and off-kilter, Carlson calls it “a song about the personification of the future, and finding your own truth.” She continues, “So often we look to others for the meaning of life or what to do next, but really the only answer is within.”
