Denver band Gauntlet Hair have a new album called Stills coming out on Dead Oceans, and the band took to its older influences like Joy Division to get a darker more haunting sound on the album. A quick listen to the song “Human Nature” includes more echoey, gothic kind of touches, it sounds like it was recorded in a big, dark chamber of an old house. It’s not creepy, bad vibes though, more like mysterious and brooding.

Maybe the weather had something to do with it? The band recorded it during the dark and gray days of winter in Jacob Portrait’s (Unknown Mortal Orchestra) Portland studio aptly called “The Cave,” and the press release cites Gauntlet Hair’s affinity for “goth industrialists and post-punks” as a driver on this album’s sound. It’s Joy Division reimagined for the modern age.

Check out the lead single “Human Nature” below, the album Stills arrives on July 16 via Dead Oceans. The band starts touring today.
