The Dodos

Next month, San Francisco indie duo The Dodos will return with their sixth studio album, Individ. In November they shared the jangly “Competition,” and now they’ve released another track.

The Dodos will never make abrasive music, but “Goodbyes and Endings” is rougher than their previous work. With flatly delivered vocals and chunky guitars, the cut sounds a bit like the Morning Benders decided to cover the National. The sound fits The Dodos well and hints that Individ will be a diverse record.

The album drops Jan. 27, but listen to EW’s exclusive premiere of “Goodbyes and Endings” below.
