“Feel What You Feel” b/w “Access Egress”
Both tunes on this 7″ were recorded as part of the Rotting Teeth in the Horse’s Mouth sessions, but seemed better suited as a separate release. It’s also given us the opportunity to launch our own imprint, Peculiar Works.
Though written and recorded in a pre-COVID-19 world, Jaws’s lyrics to “Feel What You Feel” have an eerie prescience: “I’ve been stuck inside too long / Feel a fever coming on / Haven’t left the house in days / I need some sunlight on my face.” A song about longing and a desire for human connection with a chorus that’s pure power pop glory. You’ll want to stick your head out the window and sing along through your mask. The tune is accentuated with some string arrangements by long-time friend and occasional collaborator Michael Hampton (One Last Wish, The Faith).
The B-side, “Access Egress,” is a melancholy meditation on our endless cycles of conflict. Over a looping bass line and Matt’s free jazz tumble of percussion, Sohrab incants, “Generation vendetta / Born in a bodybag / These wars never end / They just smolder on.” And Jaworski joins in the chorus, a soft plea for “no more secrets,” before an airy keyboard ushers the listener towards the astral realm.
Please note that all pre-orders will have immediate access to pre-release track downloads and streaming.
Pre-orders should ship as close to October 9 release date as possible. If we get them in sooner they will go out sooner, too. We’ll do our best and keep you up to date with the timing as we know more.
