405 HQ is pretty excited about the forthcoming new album from Marnie Stern, and even more so now that we've heard its first proper single.

'East Side Story' showcases everything we love about Stern: manic guitars, beautiful pop melodies and a ridiculously refreshing and exciting approach to songwriting.

The track is taken from The Chronicles of Marnia, which is released on March 18th via Kill Rock Stars.

"Quick and silver paintings. / Everyone is faking. / Can instinct come and go?"
