French duo Cancers is streaming “Missed,” off of the A-side of their forthcoming single out June 9, 2015 via Debt Offensive Records and produced by legendary Seattle engineer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Mudhoney, Soundgarden) below. “Missed,” one half of the single’s “a-side,” begins with lo-fi fuzz and an electronic rhythm that crackles under the sunny shoegaze guitars before the song unfolds with a hyper dance beat and gorgeously bleak vocal melodies.
