After two years of constant touring, the Portland dance-pop wizards STRFKR are getting ready to release their third album, Miracle Mile, on February 19th on Polyvinyl. Then they're hitting the road again. Now you can hear the album cut "Atlantis," a quick bit of sweet-tooth pop built on dreamy synths and bubbling guitars that betray the distance and loneliness in singer Josh Hodges' voice and lyrics. "This is an old song that has gone through many versions," Hodges tells Rolling Stone. "It was actually written for a small Portland label comp that never came out, so we revamped it and used it on the album. It fit in well with the end-of-the-world theme on Miracle Mile."
