The trio of Hawksley Workman, Ryan Dahle and Steve Bays are back.
De-Evolve Again is the third song the trio has shared since announcing their sophomore album which will arrive early next year.
“The word ‘devolve’ wasn’t quite enough for us. We needed to make up a word, ‘De-Evolve’, which is a literal Devo (the band) influence. Lyrically, it hints at some kind of global awakening…as if all 7 billion broken individuals stood up and accepted a shared responsibility of what might be going wrong on the planet. ‘De-Evolve Again’ might be more of a conversation, with no conclusion, so deconstructing its meaning is up to the listener. There is darkness but also hope in this one, and although reality is crushing down on us, maybe we can get it together before the clocks stop.”
The Rickster (wondering how he still got his headphones on like a seventies hifi).
