Mush Share Anti-World Cup Anthem
I’ve really been digging the stuff from Mush‘s forthcoming LP, and this new tune takes a slight turn in sound, which I think is great for an album listen as a whole…if you’re still doing that sort of thing. Sonically, you can immediately feel the band pulling back, letting the track trickle its way into the speakers; it sounds like any number of American indie rock bands at the moment…Kevin Morby, Martin Courtney, etc. Lyrically, the song’s hitting out at the huge human rights violations that have gone with the World Cup in Qatar; we all love soccer, but we definitely are on Mush’s side here, as the tournament should have been halted long ago…let alone awarded. Song’s good, message is on point. Winning. Down Tools will be out via Memphis Industries on July 8th.
