Richmond, Virginia’s Minor Poet is the Zombies and Beach Boys-inspired psych pop project of producer and singer-songwriter Andrew Carter and his three bandmates. On the newly premiered track, “Judith Beheading Holofernes,” his striking, cinematic style of writing recounts a serendipitous affair with an art school student. Judith and Holofernes pop up as a visual reference throughout the groovy love ballad, like a grave omen for what’s to come.
Minor Poet’s debut record, And How!, is out August 25 on Egghunt Records (home to Camp Howard, Lucy Dacus, and Clair Morgan). Preorder the LP here. Check out more from Minor Poet and peep gig dates below.
