The Pleasure Curses, DC’s premier disco dance duo, Tuesday released a new song, “Concrete.”
Here it is!

It’s one of their best, in my opinion. It starts out with a crunchier, blockier sound, but the song gets more sparkly as the band, and we, get more invested in it.
They lyrics also serve as a wonderfully polite snub to the subject of the song:
“everyone is something to someone/
nobody is nothing to no one/
but hanging out with you seems like no fun/
hanging out with you seems like no fun, no”
Essentially, some experiences can be as grey and lifeless as concrete.
Jahn Alexander and Evan Maxwell are certain to play the song live at their next gig on Thursday, April 2, at the Martin Lurther King DC Public Library.
After that, their next scheduled show, at the moment, is apparently part of an event at the Smithsonian American Art Museum on Friday, May 22 (Memorial Day weekend!).
