Tough Age Announce Which Way Am I
When one sets out to “write a song about peaceful things” we tend to already have preconceived notions of what we’re about to hear. That said, I think the way Tough Age open up on their new single is exactly the opposite of what I had in mind. It’s jagged, guitars stabbing like knives before the rest of the picture is filled in for the listener. Of course, Clark’s calming delivery quickly offers that peaceful contrast against the sinister pulse of the guitars; it really does fuck with your head, as these two sounds are perfectly juxtaposed. In weaving it all together, you find yourself entirely immersed, ensnared by the band’s balancing musical wizardry. Their new LP, Which Way Am I, will be released on August 7th via Mint Records.
