Speaking about the song the band said ‘Throughout this bands reblooming from a three piece pop punk band to a six piece… whatever the hell we are, the debate of us being Ska or Not has plagued our existence. So much so it lead to the creation of a song that’s equal parts flippant and equal parts ennoi. We wanted to make a song that was not only a certified banger but also self aware of leaning into ska tropes and then going back to whatever it is we do. I love it and genuinely think it’s one of the coolest songs we’ve ever written. Think that song 2 Tone-Army by the Toasters meets A Tik Tok song with some Green Day. Sound good?’
The single is taken off the bands upcoming new studio album “Grieving Expectation”. The band both recorded and engineered the album themselves and when it came to mixing and mastering, Devon went with longtime collaborators Mike Kennerty (All American Rejects) for mixing & Erik Atwell for mastering (Telethon).
The record is a collection of maximalist pop punk songs pulling from every genre imaginable. The record’s themes shift from previous record “Limited Joy’s” annoyance with death, to the realisation that there’s actually a bit of time until we reach that point so we better deal with our dreams, communication skills, hubris & a myriad of other things to fill the time! Masking nihilistic musings with “sugar in your teeth” pop music has become a mainstay for Devon Kay & the Solutions and with “Grieving Expectation” they’ve expanded on that idea ten fold.
