Attic Salt are doing it big time with their new album Get Wise coming out next month. This week they debuted the first hit single from that new album via Brooklyn Vegan. You can check out that full article about them and with a stream to the song and video right here. We’ve also embedded the youtube video below. The song is called “Mud.” From the article:

“Mud” is actually the last song that came together right before we went into the studio to record Get Wise. Written by Alyssa Currie during a downpour, the song really came together during recording. Being such a new song, and all of us recording separately, it became an instant favorite of ours once it was finished.

Get Wise is out September 25th via Jump Start Records, and will be available on vinyl.
