We just released a new song called "SNR" as the second installment in our humble exile collection.
It's a bit more unhinged than usual for us. I wanted to make a song that jumped right in and went full stop for about two minutes. And it's undoubtedly a product of me spending too much time scrolling social media lately (particularly twitter), and the song is somewhat of a reflection on the blanket of noise that covers so many important issues going on today.
Like I said when releasing "What the heck" a few weeks ago, I wasn't sure then when the next song idea would come along or what it would be. And that's still the case now that "SNR" is finished and out there. This one really came together in just a couple days - a lot faster than I expected. And who knows - maybe the next one will too, or not. So yeah right now I have no idea what will come next, but I'm honestly pretty excited to discover whatever that is. Stay tuned.
But for now we hope you enjoy this song. We'd love if you'd stream it loud and if you share it with anyone you'd be our goddamn heroes. And if you want to buy it, the proceeds all go to the Equal Justice Initiative.
Thank you for listening. Talk is cheap. Be kind to each other. Black Lives Matter.
All proceeds from this release will go to the Equal Justice Initiative, who is committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the U.S., challenging racial and economic injustice, and protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society. See more information about Equal Justice Initiative at their website eji.org.
Here's a lyric video for "What the heck" featuring animations of the Mandelbrot set and other trippy fractals. I feel like the fractal visuals go well with the lyrical themes that we're all connected as part of something larger. And even though the divisions we invent among ourselves are superficial and arbitrary, the pain those divisions cause is real and hurts all of us.
Thank you for listening and remember to be kind to each other, and that Black Lives Matter.
