Another home run from a band on an incredible streak.

Kills Birds are back once more with another song from their upcoming album 'Married', and continue to show why they are such an exciting prospect.

The track is called 'Cough Up Cherries' and is a low-key indie belter, with bursts of downtrodden grunge and intense pop. 

It's a driving banger that keeps you gripped to the very last second of piercing noise.

Vocalist Nina Ljeti had this to say about the song:

"There are a lot of themes to "Cough Up Cherries," as it was written during the height of the pandemic in 2020. The song touches on feelings of loneliness, paranoia, and hopelessness that we all experienced. In addition, "Cough Up Cherries" also addresses the identity crisis we all face in the digital age. What our performative personas are vs. who we really are when we’re left alone, and if in the midst of great injustice, we are actually able to hold our own selves accountable."

'Married' is set for release on November 12 via Royal Mountain Records and KRO Records.

Here's the previously released 'Glisten':
