Last year, the Montreal post-punk band Ought broke up. At the same time that announcement was made, Ought lead vocalist Tim Darcy and the band’s bassist Ben Stidworthy revealed that they had started a new band called Cola alongside US Girls drummer Evan Cartwright. Their first-ever single, “Blank Curtain,” came out then, too, and now Cola are back with news of a debut album, Deep In View, which will be out in May. The trio has shared another new song today, the jittery and layered “So Excited.”

“We would talk about this track as the ‘capstone’ of the Cola record,” Darcy said in a statement, continuing:

It was that song that we would warm up with and get tight on since it was one of the first to really come together, plus it’s fun to play. There are Cola songs of mine that predate this one but this was the one I was working on when Ben told me he was going to come back from grad school and we talked about jamming together. It clicked when we played it out with Evan and from there we decided to work on songs for a new project.

Check it out below.
