Thrice Share a New Song “Only Us”
Thrice has shared a new song “Only Us” which is from their new album Palms out September 14.
On “Only Us,” Thrice bring pulsating synth lines, fragile harmonies, and massively heavy guitar riffs. “‘Only Us’ came from thinking about how we’re so easily divided into ‘us’ and ‘them,’ when really we have an inherent ability to care for those in our group, and the parameters for who falls into that group are extremely flexible,” says front man Dustin Kensrue. “It’s about how the things that we think separate us are actually inconsequential, and if we could broaden the idea of ‘us’ to include all people, it would help us to build a more loving and civil society.”
HONNE UNVEIL CAPTIVATING COMPANION VIDEO FOR “I GOT YOU”
U.K.-based electro-soul duo, HONNE, have unveiled the feel-good companion video for their latest acclaimed single, “I Got You.” Directed by frequent collaborator, Danilo Parra (A$AP Rocky, Skaters), the nostalgic visual brings HONNE’s romantic escapism to life through a touching story of young love. The video premiered today via WONDERLAND with the outlet praising the track as, “a R&B-tinged bop that describes the idea of romantic escapism and getting away from the bullshit to be with your beloved.”
Pure Bathing Culture’s decision to cover The Blue Nile was beyond natural, nearly inevitable. Sarah Versprille and Daniel Hindman attribute their initial infatuation with the Scottish synth-pop heroes to Richard Swift, who produced the Portland duo’s debut EP. Sarah elaborates, “One morning before starting the session he asked us if we had ever heard The Blue Nile and played us a few tracks. We became immediately obsessed with their world of nostalgia and longing and the way the songs were simultaneously extremely sad at times but also intensely romantic and modern. It made us feel like the music we wanted to make was validated in some way by the fact that their music had already existed in the universe.”
