Less than a month remains before the release of Fucked Up's fourth studio LP, and now they've emerged with another cut called "Sun Glass" and an appropriately radiant clip to accompany it. Like the rest of Glass Boys' early singles, this one's largely built around roiling electric guitar lines and Damien Abraham's phlegmy screams. But "Sun Glass" allows even more melodicism to creep in via acoustic guitar and distant backing vocals. The clip itself seems to mirror the song's uplifting nature, as Abraham leads the proceedings through puffs of smoke, bites of ice cream, and artsy lens flares. The credits for the video offer "thanks to...the city of Oakland, ice cream, weed," which is a pretty tidy summation of the sextet's aesthetic these days. Glass Boys is due June 3 on Matador.
