Prawn // "Rooftops" Out Today!

Today, Prawn is back again releasing "Rooftops," the new hit single off their album titled Run that'll be released September 22nd. In Run, the New Jersey natives embellish sounds and instruments that could only be captured at a live show, invoking a closer bond to the listener. http://smarturl.it/tsr177

“I grasped onto the fact that we're always going to feel alienated or isolated one way or another in our relations. I think we all want to be good people and contribute good to the world even if were all a little fucked up.“

In "Rooftops," Tony Clark and the band explore the dichotomy of residing in a city and delve beyond the limits. StereoGum featured the single commenting on the thought provoking message that leaves the viewer pondering on how a city can shape a worldview while Billboard mentioned the split between "the cheery backdrop to the song’s bittersweet, sometimes sullen mood."

Written in over the course of two years, Prawn has solidified it's place in the post-rock and punk stratosphere but this time, finds comfort and newborn confidence in their music, transmitting the most provocative and thrilling album yet.

Download/stream "Rooftops" from any of the outlets below –

Next week, they are heading to Europe with The Flatliners to celebrate the release of Run!

Topshelf Tour Announcement + People Like You Video

The amazing People Like You have a new video for “Variations on an Aria” up on BrooklynVegan! It focuses on the theme of family and celebrates the varying backgrounds of the members of the band, resulting in an incredibly heart-warming and personal visual accompaniment to the song.

Prawn, Slingshot Dakota, and People Like You will be heading up and down the East Coast, accompanied by Queen Moo and Us and Us Only on select dates. Unfortunately they won't be coming to the UK, but if you find yourself in the states in December, be sure to hit up one of the shows!

Prawn // "North Lynx" Song Premiere + Album Announcement

We are so excited to announce that Prawn's new album Run will be out on September 22nd!


Written over two years and recorded in just two weeks, Run is the refined sound of their previous release Kingfisher, but instead of incorporating brass and string arrangements, the band concentrate only on the instruments they can play during a live show.


NPR premiered the album's first single, "North Lynx," commenting on its pretty melodies that end up juxtaposed against an "elephant-stampeding riff (and pinch harmonic) in a dramatic climax."

With their first release in three years, Prawn brings a record that encompasses the post-rock and punk sounds we’re used to hearing from the band, but with a new kind of focused and exuberant energy.

Pre-orders for the album and album bundles are now available in our store.
