PWR BTTM Stream ‘Answer My Text’ Ahead of Pageant LP

PWR BTTM aren’t pulling their punches with ‘Answer My Text’, the second single from their forthcoming LP Pageant (May 12, Big Scary Monsters / Polyvinyl). The track finds Liv Bruce singing in narrative-like fashion to a prospective lover through trials and tribulations; from asking for their phone number to formulating the perfect emoji combination, the song takes these seemingly miniscule acts of affection and puts them under the lens of anxiety, hopefulness, and comedy. 

Pageant is the Brooklyn-based duo’s newest effort, and sees Bruce and Ben Hopkins exploring wider musical spaces (with choral backings, horns, and flutes expanding their sonic range) while growing even more intimate.
