Robber Robber have announced their debut album, Wild Guess will drop on July 26th. Along with the news, The Burlington, Vermont band have share the single/video “Backup Plan.” The band includes Nina Cates, Zack James, Will Krulak, and Carney Hemler.

Wild Guess was co-produced by Cates and James and recorded with Benny Yurco (Grace Potter) and Urian Hackney (The Armed, Rough Francis, Iggy Pop).

Following lead single “Sea or War,” today’s single “Backup Plan” is mechanical and methodical — the back-and-forth ringing of guitars are eventually clouded by fuzzier layers that seem to war with each other in a test of endurance. Cates elaborates: “I wrote ‘Backup Plan’ while I was helping a friend through a sticky relationship moment and was reflecting a lot on when it’s worth putting in the effort and when it’s best to call it. The song explores the feeling of unease that arises when you know there’s something unaddressed, yet you’re unsure if it’s worth stirring things up. I find this relevant in close friendships as well as relationships.”

James and Cates have been playing music together since they were kids. Immersing themselves in the local DIY scene, they began writing songs and formed Robber Robber. The past few years has given the project time to live and breathe: “With this approach, we were able to really conceptualize and fine-tune what we wanted Robber Robber to be,” says the band. “This project is very conceptual, and therefore can be difficult to pinpoint, and that’s part of what we find refreshing about it.”
