Hear Pwr Bttm Explore Insecurity on Biting New Song ‘LOL’

Rock duo will release sophomore album 'Pageant' in May

Pwr Bttm explore identity and insecurity on the moving, bombastic new song “LOL.” The track will appear on the duo’s forthcoming album Pageant, out on May 12th via Polyvinyl.

The tender song has Ben Hopkins taking the vocal lead above pulsating drums, sparse guitars and backing vocals provided by Hopkins’ mother that build up to a climactic, cathartic end. “When you are queer, you are always 19,” he sings towards the song’s end.

The New York based duo consists of Hopkins and Liv Bruce, with the pair trading off vocal, guitar and drum duties on each song. They released their debut full-length, Ugly Cherries, in 2015. Pwr Bttm announced Pageant earlier this year with the empowering “Big Beautiful Day” and most recently debuted the hilarious, assertive “Answer My Text” last month. They are currently touring Europe and will launch a North American tour in support of their LP in May.
