CUSP – ” I Know “

Posted: July 14, 2022 in MUSIC

“I Know” is the new single from Chicago-based band Cusp available digitally on Fire Talk imprint Open Tab. The “jagged, propulsive, anxious music” of debut EP ‘Spill’ made them a buzzy band to watch in their prior home of Rochester, where the four piece’s angular and exploratory post punk made them impossible to categorize. “I Know” sees the band pivot to more straightforward but no less engaging rock music, with heavy guitar riffs juxtaposed with Bender’s melancholic drawl.

Making a home within their own niche between the resurgent emo scene and the blossoming creative sphere of Chicago, Cusp continue to craft their own fascinatingly temperamental sound.

“I Know” follows Open Tab’s string of launch singles including “song of the year contender” “I Am The Car” by Fake Fruit“Now It’s Gone” by Maria BC“Asterisk” by Sub*T“Televised” by headboy, and “All I Know” by Pedazo de Carne con Ojo. Highlighting one previously unreleased track from an artist monthly, each Open Tab release will also encapsulate a short Q&A profile and mix created by the artist. With an emphasis on new music, the imprint will lend itself as a discovery tool for listeners worldwide as well as an opportunity to give a platform to artists whose work Fire Talk is enthusiastic about.
