The Skinny: Today Pyyramids shares “Do You Think You’re Enough,” an unheard song from the band’s forthcoming debut album, Brightest Darkest Day, out April 9 on Paracadute. The band – helmed by Tim Nordwind from indie rock band OK Go and Drea Smith of the electro-pop outfit He Say/She Say – were initially introduced by a mutual friend via email and immediately bonded over an affinity for first-wave British post-punk and 80’s Manchester bands. These influences meld with current sonic styles to create a fantastic record full of songs that will not leave your head easily. Hear “Do You Think You’re Enough” in addition to other album cuts “Don’t Go,” “Smoke & Mirrors,” and “That Ain’t Right” via the SoundCloud link below.

Recorded in Nordwind’s basement studio, with the final tracks recorded at Dan Konopka of OK Go’s studio, Brightest Darkest Day was mixed by Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, MGMT) and Konopka. Brightest Darkest Day finds its creators once again venturing into fresh territory. “There’s a pop sensibility to the album that’s bright but the sound and delivery is very dark,” explains Smith.
