After all the rumours and tumultuous arguing The Smashing Pumpkins are back with some new music to quieten down the furore. New track ‘Solara’ comes with a big punch and a heavy reminder of what Corgan and Co. have in their locker.
It’s the Pumpkins’ first song with Corgan, Iha, and Chamberlin since 2000. The band’s fourth founding member, bassist D’arcy Wretzky, is not involved following a very loud dispute.
The track has a big hit of what made Smashing Pumpkins mega stars in the 90’s, intelligent lyrics, pounding rhythm and a huge dose of distorted guitars. Grungey and grimey but still sounding like a stadium-sized noise, this is one is for the fans.
Take a listen below.
