nicole schneit’s third album as air waves, warrior, is due out april 6th via western vinyl. last month saw the release of “morro bay,” the album’s second single, a comparatively tranquil outing in comparison to the title track that dropped yesterday.
“warrior” is propulsive, defined by its arpeggiated synth motifs and the gritty guitar progression that chugs along throughout; the esteemed kevin morby echoes schneit’s sentiments during the refrain, and it’s hard not to hear his influence in the aforementioned guitar progression. by design, “warrior” is also incredibly direct, an anthemic reassurance to those facing both inward and outward struggles.
take a listen to the track below.
