For my money, Speedy Ortiz‘s full-length debut, Major Arcana, was one of the best records of 2013, and their EP Sports was one of 2012’s highlights. So can the Northampton, Mass., indie-rock revivalists continue their streak into 2014? Their new song “American Horror” says yes — and you can hear it here first.

Not to be confused with Ryan Murphy’s debauched cable series, “American Horror” is the first single off of their upcoming four-song EP Real Hair, due out Feb. 11. It’s got all the catchy melodies and scruffy guitars you’d expect from a band hailing from the same Western Mass. stomping grounds as the Pixies, Sebadoh, and Dinosaur Jr.

Check it out below:
