Lower Dens, Jana Hunter's new band, returns Jan. 18 with new single, 'Batman'

After dropping an excellent debut last year, Jana Hunter’s new band Lower Dens starts off the new year with “Batman,” a catchy new single.

Hunter formed the band in 2009 after a pair of solo albums and a series of collaborations with the likes of Devendra Banhart and Castanets. Lower Dens started as her backing band before evolving into a more collaborative entity, which resulted last summer in the album “Twin Hand Movement.”

The swift, murky new single, backed with a somber, piano-based cover of Mayo Thompson’s “Dear Betty Baby,” is out Jan. 18 on Gnomonsong. Check here for a pair of songs from “Twin Hand Movement.”
