Long Island emo act Oso Oso have released some new music to chill listeners out. The band will follow up last year’s Yunahon Mixtape with a ten-track album titled Basking In The Glow, to be released August 16 via Triple Crown. They’ve accompanied this announcement with a lead single titled dig (II), a slow, melancholic tune, that, like most Oso songs, offers a satisfying climax for the finale. The band stick to the beach-y sound that felt integral in their latest album, which makes sense given that founder and frontman Jade Lilitri is native to south shore city Long Beach.

The song carries the same nostalgia and nonchalance that’s permeated Oso's music since the beginning, but the production is even more serene than usual. Jade croons, “Yeah, there’s this hole in my soul/So how far do you wanna go?” with an endearing ease and acceptance that lies at the heart of Oso Oso.
