Premiering today on is “Corner Girl” by Through the Sparks. The track, which is streaming below. is from the band’s new album Transindifference.

Over the course of the group’s decade-plus career, front man Jody Nelson has penned some dark songs about real-life subjects: the encroachment of death, the absurdity of modern life, the tribulations of the American office rat, the insatiable wanderlust of contemporary suburbia. It was beginning to wear on him — and, he suspected, on his audience. Transindifference, however, marks a subtle, yet meaningful, shift for Through the Sparks, especially for Nelson. “I wanted to be less dark about things,” he says. “I wanted to put some positivity in there. After I stepped back from the album, I realized that the scope had widened. The pendulum had swung the other way.”

Transindifference has a release date of March 18, 2016, via Communicating Vessels.
