There must be something in the water in Minneapolis, one of our favorite US cities for new music. Enter the grunge-pop quartet Sass who are now teasing their debut album with its title track, “Chew Toy.”
The single is an affecting portrait of a love gone awry as the chorus and Stephanie Jo Murck’s vocals sway like an amber-hued slow dance with one’s memories. The guitar-led crescendo tracks the bloom coming off the rose as those recollections reveal that despite best intentions, sometimes you just have to move on.
Stream Sass’ “Chew Toy” below and look for the album out in May via Heavy Meadow Records.
