Fresh off a gig at Bottom of the Hill last Saturday, Berkeley’s Vir is giving back to their fans in the form of a free download of the title track from their third and most recent record Engineers. A psychedelic shoegaze journey to the center of the universe, “Engineers” (the song) is supersaturated with the band’s typical dose of fuzz, loops, and delay – ebbing and flowing, soaring and crashing, and freaking out for more than six beautiful minutes.
Stream “Engineers” below, and then grab a free copy over on Vir’s SoundCloud page. We should be seeing new material from the band relatively soon, as they recently said on Facebook that they’re going to “hunker down to write and record for the winter.”
