L.A. band Goon's EP, Dusk Of Punk, is due out September 16. Today we're premiering "Green Peppers," a weird and charming new track that sums up what's exciting about Goon's pop-tinged grunge. Everybody wants to be like you/ everyone that knows you/ really wants to be just like you, sings lead singer Kenny Becker in a sweet, warbled tone. Turns out he's specifically singing about Taylor Swift, but "Green Peppers" manifests as a reflection on manic infatuation in general.

"I wrote this song during a weirdly intense phase of obsession with Taylor Swift," Becker told The FADER over email. "It started off being about her and ended up being about desire in general and how it can easily get to a place where it doesn’t align with reality at all." Listen below.
