HEAR: ‘DEAD END STREET’ OUR FRESH NEW SINGLE!
We had shot a video for this song, but decided to hold off on it. We’re all vinyl guys, so we don’t spend a ton of time watching music videos. It’s not that we don’t like doing them or anything, but I find they have a way of tainting the perception of the song. For the first time, we feel like the song can carry itself, and we want to see how far it can walk before we give you any visual cues. And I mean – if I’m being honest – we didn’t start a band to make music videos.
When I’m writing songs, I usually find myself hiding behind the words as often as possible. I’ll pile on as many metaphors I can so that when I eventually get up to sing them in front of people, the ones I’m singing about might not realize its about them. With this tune though, I basically said fuck it and tried to be as clear as I could. Doing that kind of helped me smooth out the edges of the thing I was dealing with, since I was forcing myself to stare straight at it.
It’s basically a form of affordable therapy. Let us know what you think.
It comes from our new EP ‘Zolly’. Out June 23rd.”
