Starker Song der großartigen neuen Platte ‘Entertainment Death‘ der Shoegaze/post Punk/60sPsych Wunderkinder von ‘Spirit of Behive’ aus Philadelphia.
Ever since SPIRIT OF THE BEEHIVE released their self-titled debut in 2014, they’ve developed a reputation for being your favorite band’s favorite band. Theirs is the music of immersion, of confrontation, the kind that makes a listener stop and wonder, “How are they even doing that?” And as the years wear on, that sense of bafflement has made room for SPIRIT OF THE BEEHIVE to quietly but steadily ascend, with their most recent album, 2018’s Hypnic Jerks, leaving them poised on the precipice of wider recognition.
heavy hand, middle class. chemical in a bag. all I want; love me all the time. enough is never enough. i won’t talk if you pull me up and collect my blood inside a cup. spit me out or let me in. a fantasy, a sedative. i love the way you turn to face me. drive to my head. filled with smoke, seamless dread. i don’t come to you now. when you call i can’t feel it. i remember the promise of a future. could it all be in my head? could the reaction be a godsend? i made my bed, i’ll lie in it. i bit the curb and all at once vision blurs, pressure rise, and then time becomes nothing. face that truth. any old you. i don’t care, i’ll be your “soon”. a folly of youth. spit and then bend. i don’t care, i’ll be your friend. i’ll be your friend in death and youth.
