Yesterday we shared a new Yassou Benedict track from OIM Records' upcoming Bay Area artists compilation album. The album arrives June 23 and you can view the full tracklist below. Today, Oakland's Waterstrider dropped their new single which will also be on the compilation album.
Waterstrider "Frayed" is the first track since the five-piece band released their debut album Nowhere Now. Given that the majority of that album was conceived by lead singer/guitarist Nate Salman a good while back, it's exciting to see the band moving forward so quickly and churning out new material. Stream Waterstrider "Frayed" below, catch them at the OIM Records' residency show at Leo's in Oakland on May 28 and view their full tour dates beneath.
