Athens, Ga. indie rock quartet Kuroma is releasing its new EP 20+ Centuries on Oct. 30, and Billboard is excited to premiere a kick-ass Breeders cover from the five-song set. It’s the first splash, you might say.

But no, it’s not “Cannonball.” Instead of going for the obvious single, Kuroma covered the Kim Deal-penned song "Divine Hammer," which features one of indie rock’s all-time best sexual metaphors.

Singer Hank Sullivant explains the choice:

"Last Splash is one of my very favorite albums. We chose to cover ‘Divine Hammer’ because it's so good. Even though it's straightforward it has a quality that's hard for me to describe. We've been playing it in our set all year."

Sullivant is also a touring guitarist in MGMT, for whom Kuroma’s James Richardson and Will Berman also play.
