A Deli Premiere: "Racket" by New Threads

Wasting no time and keeping the machine running hot, New Threads debuts the music video for its single “Racket” whose rhythm trots tough. The new alt-rock track lets the guitars rip to visuals of tennis greats like Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic and, like a good tennis match that it is, you can’t take your eyes off it. The group recently released its single “Schlitz,” letting no pandemic stop the work, and now with the furious jam that is “Racket,” New Threads solidifies its drive and emphasizes its sound. Both singles are part of the group’s upcoming seventh studio album, which will be released via the band’s label Pink Hat Records. Recording together, running a label, and rocking out—New Threads is as involved as any New England act. We are delighted to premiere “Racket” for you below; ride towards the weekend at full volume. - Rene Cobar

New Threads offers up a refreshing alt-rock single in "Schlitz"

“Schlitz” is just the type of feel-good story we need for the weekend ahead: the song is over six minutes of summer-scented alternative rock recorded by Boston’s New Threads in three different parts of Massachusetts. Jacob Keplinger (guitar, vocals, keys), Justin Siegel (drums, vocals), James Siegel (bass, vocals) did not allow the pandemic to disrupt the connection they share nor the creativity that propels the group, and we all get to reap the rewards of that. “Schlitz” has a jam feel to it as it switches rhythms and flashes distinctive guitar riffs that feel refreshing and have a slight acidity to them—the song is a cool summer beverage. Sprinkling mint-cool elements of jazz and psych, New Threads offers a funky track you will want to take in slowly; recorded a la 2020 and perspiring a better tomorrow, “Schlitz” is streaming below. - Rene Cobar
