Minnesota’s TINY MOVING PARTS have just released the music video for their new song “Applause.” The band’s new album Swell, set to be released on Triple Crown Records on January 26th. Pre-orders for the record are available now. The band recently announced their winter headlining tour with support from Mom Jeans and Oso Oso. Kicking off in late January, the tour sees the trio winding their way across the country for over a month (all tour dates below).
Vocalist/guitarist Dylan Mattheisen has played in Tiny Moving Parts with his cousins, brothers Matthew Chevalier and Billy Chevalier since junior high school, and their tight, mathy post hardcore-pop punk combination shows their skills in spades. Their live show is frenetic, and their musical prowess is impressive – the complexity of their songs makes it difficult to believe there are only three of them onstage. The band first drew attention with the release of their debut LP This Couch Is Long & Full of Friendship in 2013 on Kind of Like Records, eventually signing to Triple Crown Records in 2014, who released their second LP Pleasant Living later that year. In 2016, Tiny Moving Parts released their third LP, Celebrate, to widespread acclaim from NPR, Noisey, Alternative Press, the AV Club and many others and were nominated for the “Best Underground Band” award at the 2016 APMAs and “Best New Artist Music Video” at the 2017 APMAs.
Send applause to your heart strings.
Send it all down.
May they strum and feel everything.
Another minute passed, another year I dread.
Letters will help you spring a farewell.
Don’t doubt your alphabet.
There’s always anniversaries for moments we refuse belief.
I can’t tell you how much it hurts to be reminded all the time.
Expand and hold it in.
All these years have passed,
yet it hurts to be reminded all the time.
Applause my lungs, still breathing.
Sometimes it’s hard believing.
Struggle with every single breath.
I want to give up.
We are the overcast that refused to pass
every afternoon when the sun left.
Please take me back.
I miss the twists.
I miss the spins.
All I have is the damage.
