Maeve Steele Releases New Single “Tycho”
“To me, this song is really a deep breath. I wrote it in the context of a lullaby, and there’s something about zooming out and looking to the sky that feels really calming,” shares Steele. “It’s reassuring to remember how small we are right before bed. I’ve always had trouble falling asleep, so this song is what I try to thing about when I’m struggling late at night.”
Maeve Steele, New Single “Tycho” Out 2/15
The track was inspired by the prevalence of the 108-million-year-old crater, one of the clearest craters you can see from Earth. Drawn to the crater after discovering it on Pinterest, Maeve began messing around and personifying Tycho which initially led to jealousy, thinking how nice it must be to have an existence where time doesn’t matter. As she thought about it more it became a cliche dilemma. Many of us wish we had the luxury of time without considering how lonely it might be and the life that would be taken out of every day.

THE GRASSHOPPER LIES HEAVY: Everything Is Noise Debuts “King Of Opinion” Video
Issues THE GRASSHOPPER LIES HEAVY guitarist/songwriter James Woodard of the video, “‘King Of Opinion’ is lyrically a kind of a tongue in cheek song. I wrote it during the most isolated part of lockdown, so it’s really about not going outside for weeks and becoming vegetative on video games and social media. It’s a self-deprecating song about arguing about politics, heavy metal, and video games. The music video was filmed using analog electronics; we used half-broken thrift store VHS cameras and wanted to give it a real Public Access vibe with silly wipe transitions and the like. It was a ton of fun to shoot.”
