Shark Week’s upcoming Santurce 7-inch takes its name from a neighborhood in San Juan, Puerto Rico, which is where the Washington, D.C. foursome recorded the double-sided single. But “Go West,” one of two tracks included on that July 30 release, owes more to, well, the Wild West than the Island of Enchantment. The galloping track confidently strides over gruff percussion, fatalist lyrics, and taut guitar licks that wouldn’t be out of place in a Sergio Leone pastiche piece. Stream “Go West” down below and pre-order the Santurce 7-inch, out via Analog Edition Records, here.
