Versing have quickly ascended the ladder of the underground Seattle scene since their first record, Nude Descending, came out in 2016. The quartet signed to Hardly Art this year and “Silver Dollar” is the first taste we’ve gotten from the band since their signing. The droning track comes with a video that features VHS-style footage of the band.  The distortion-filled song tells the story of someone guilty of a hit-and-run who gets away with it due to privilege (a la Ethan Couch). Versing’s last record, Nirvana, came out via Help Yourself while their debut, Nude Descending, was released through Youth Riot Records. Below, watch the video for “Silver Dollar” as well as Versing’s live performance at KEXP’s stage at this year’s Upstream Music Festival.
