A psychedelic-tinged track that presents a beautiful landscape of warm melodies provided by an upright piano, subby bass, and a wonderful bed of strings. Reversed violins add a lot of movement to the table, while the swinging drums and groovy percussion set the foundation for its otherworldly march.
"The feelings of insecurity and anxiety are explored in the verses, while the chorus celebrates the joyous truth that real beauty is found in knowing the one you love better than anybody else does." Junkyard Romantis
"I work in tech (audio-software) in Silicon Valley. As a result, I meet a lot of “Crypto Bros” that are willing to invest in anything from Floki-Inu to Squid-Coin, and will pitch these “opportunities” to anyone willing to listen. I’ve always had morbid fascination with cults and pyramid-schemes, so these pitches sounded very familiar to me. “Chasing the Bull” is more or less a compilation of every crypto-coin, NFT or investing course someone pitched to me." Sam Feinstein
What's also of interest about this single, is that it is the second of a four-song arc that began this year with the single, "Life in 3." I thought that was a pretty cool idea. We are all familiar with concept albums, but I don't believe I have ever seen a band apply a "concept" to a string of singles.
"I wish I could tell you what this song is really about but I haven’t got a clue - I only have theories. Michael wrote the words and sang them (in his “vocal booth” which resembles a homemade sarcophagus but is actually quite comfortable). I did not ask nor did he offer the true meaning of the lyrics and that is always good enough for me". Lee Leffler
The album’s cover art features red wine spilling from a shattered glass of elegant stemware, symbolizing the decadent party that is now winding down while a new generation seeks its place in a diminished world. Matahari Brigade
"Tønder is a town in southern Denmark. People in Europe specifically in Germany and surrounding countries go there to get married. Think kind of like Las Vegas but with less pizazz. It can be an adventure to travel there and when you get there you have to set up "residency" in the town before you can marry. So, it's a town full of stories of love and loss." Chip Pirrs
"Flock o' Fakes" is an original fusion of grunge and rock but also power pop. A slightly disharmonic, vastly original tune that brings together lofi textures with a familiar sound.
"We are being treated like fools, the cost of living is becoming unbelievable, and unpayable by the majority of people, whilst the rich, and in power get richer... I know this has been going on around the world for decades now. We need a change. A revolution? Stay safe, keep on keeping on!" Ruiz!
Ian ‘Lightning’ Whiteling’s vocals shine with graceful highs and lows and layered do-wop harmonies while Bill ‘The Professor’ Mar-ten hits the keys of an encircling organ. Amar ‘The Groovemeister’ Grover on bass and Alan ‘The Milkman’ Perkins on drums and percussion rack up their accolades with a playful beat and skillful harmony.
