Posse, local indie darlings and Pacific NW magazine cover stars, have released a new single off their forthcoming 7-inch (yes, they still have those) on Wharf Cat Records. The single, “Voices,” streaming over at The Fader, is typical Posse: dreamy and ethereal with guitars that recall your favorite mid-90s alt-rock jams, ala the Pixies, Galaxie 500 and the Breeders.

Though, we might have to wait awhile for the full-length follow-up — the Capitol Hill house and the basement studio where the band practiced and recorded burned down a few months ago — the band’s plugging away at the next record, the successor to Soft Opening which received raves from Pitchfork and NME.
