Sydney quintet and Spunk Records signatories Bearhug have released instrumental track ‘Borderlines’ as a teaser for their second album So Gone. The band have referred to the release as a ‘guitar album’; opting for fuzzy, rhythmic harmony inspired by Sonic Youth, Fugazi and The Wrens over the jangly tones of their previous album. The lyrics, they say, present ‘connection to the past, adolescent dreams of adulthood, family ties, hindsight, social alienation, and the strength and fear in holding onto love.’

So Gone will be released through Spunk Records on September 12th.
