Hi-nrg band’s new record arrives late January.
By Blurt Staff
Bay Area upstarts Scary Little Friends are prepping for the release of their new EP Silent Revolution, which drops Jan. 29. It’s via the Randm label, but there’s nothing random about their aggressive yet tuneful brand of power pop—and you don’t have to take our word for it, because we are able to unveil a track from the record right here. It’s titled “In This Lifetime”:
The 7-songer is described as “addressing alienation with less of a generic and transient fist-in-the-air, and more of an impression-leaving palm-to-the-forehead,” a notion that bandleader Chris Jones affirms, commenting on the album and “In This Lifetime”:
“The internet is the modern battlefield. It is inevitable that that world comes crashing down upon us. Perhaps there is hope in the aftermath. Perhaps we will be born anew into a world without technology.
“You’re young, you’re crazy, but you’re not alone,” he adds, when discussing the tune, and in the song itself when he sings, “There’s a season when we reach for higher ground, shatter the lies we believe in. In this lifetime, we all lose our minds, and sometimes love is all we’re searching for.”
The group has a handful of shows coming up – see below. A full tour is tba once the record is out.
