TRACK OF THE WEEK 17/06/18 – MUNCIE GIRLS – PICTURE OF HEALTH

Muncie Girls have claimed the title of this weeks track of the week with thee brand new single ‘Picture Of Health’!

The fast-paced vigour of the track emphasises the punk undertones Muncie Girls are striving to achieve. The melodic intensity of the track was written after vocalist and guitarist Lande Hekt realised “how much easier it is to worry about your friends than it is to worry about yourself.”

Also marking the announcement of the bands second LP ‘Fixed Ideals’, the album is said to be a coverage topics of anxiety and mental health, the effects of too much alcohol wasting potential, having a desire to learn and be educated, as well as focusing on personal relationships and the importance of friendship and family. And what we feel when those relationships let us down. Muncie Girls’ second album also marks a progression as Lande played both guitar and bass when they were tracking. She comments “Having two guitars sounds really different and adds intricacy to the songs. I was listening to different music when I wrote the songs and when we recorded it so that probably sounds quite different. I was listening to a lot of The Replacements, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Popguns and The Pastels so i wonder if any of that is audible! I think we all became a bit more adventurous when we were writing and recording this record.”

TRACK OF THE WEEK 01/04/18 – WHO WE ARE – MEMORY

This weeks track of the week goes to Los Angeles Quartet Who We Are with their track ‘Memory’ from the forthcoming self-titled EP ‘Who We Are’!

In a collective statement, the band provides further explanation and information regarding the product’s essence: “This is a song trying to give people an inside look and a first-hand experience of what it’s like to be dying of cancer and watching someone you love die of cancer. The video depicts unnecessary conflicts in a household as wasted time of enjoying someone’s company that’s close to you. “Memory” also has a deeper meaning, such as the split that can happen between a family due to such dramatic news. Whether it’s lashing out, trying to cope or trying to distance yourself from the person who is terminal. The song is about one of the band’s members’ father, who is actually cast in the video. We wanted to show the struggle Nikko was going through with his dad’s illness and to also honor his dad. We are so pleased with the final product and hope it speaks to everyone. Ultimately, we just want to make great music that others enjoy.”
