Brooklyn band Bodega's new album, Broken Equipment, is out this Friday. Like their debut, Endless Scroll, the band search for the human element in a sea of targeted ads and influencers via some very, very catchy post-punk and new wave inspired pop. The album also finds them exploring new lyrical territory, though, like their terrific new single, "Pillar on the Bridge of You."

“Our band, for the most part, has avoided pop’s universal subject matter: love,” singer-guitarist Ben Hozie says, “Not because we think it an unworthy subject, but because I haven’t been sure how to approach it in BODEGA’s style.” They definitely put their own spin on it. "I want to be a pillar on the bridge of you," Hozie sings, "Semi trucks rolling over me. Carry your load in a map with wheels. Orange shapes where you’re gonna be." You can watch the video, which was shot by the band's Nikki Belfiglio and edited by Hozie, below.

Bodega have also announced an extensive North American summer tour, which wraps up with a hometown show at Brooklyn Made on August 27. Tickets for the whole tour go on sale Friday, March 11 at 10 AM.
