Canadian punk rockers Fucked Up have just dropped the fourth single from their forthcoming album, David Comes To Life. Look for it on Matador on June 7th.
When the band dropped "The Other Shoe," I was skeptical of the band going in a more melodic direction, and making use of more female vocals, too.
But I have to say this song hits a sweet spot for me. The verses are even catchier than the choruses, and the chord progression adds some sweetness to Damian Abraham sandpaper'd voice.
The lyrics tell a love story, showing the emotion can show up in the weirdest places--you know, like outside of a factory where work-weary employees are being handed leftist literature. Sure, why not?
