Today, the band has shared the new single “Glowing.” Listen here.
“Sometimes the best thing you can do when you’re in a dark place is surround yourself with good people, optimistic people, loving people,” says frontman Brad Garcia. “You hope that the good in them will start to cast some light onto you — even if it just barely breaks through that dark cloud. This song is about desperately holding onto someone else’s glow, and getting lost searching for your own.”
About recording their second full-length, Garcia states, “When ‘band world’ got put on pause back in 2020, it almost felt like a sigh of relief. We found this sense of freedom in being able to just write music for no other reason than writing music. With real pressure we could just write riffs, not overthink anything. And I think because of that, sonically, the record feels so authentically us.”
He continues, “Thematically, I approached writing this record from this place of not knowing what’s next (for the band or for ourselves as individuals). It ended up being this cathartic process of learning to deal with this central part of your life being forced across a tightrope, and ultimately learning to be alright if it slips and falls apart, because it might make way for a new chapter. We started writing this album as band guys in our twenties. By the time it comes out we’ll be in our thirties, married, with a clearer understanding of who we are as people that have this insane privilege of making music together where people actually listen. We don’t take that for granted. Also, we all think the album fuckin’ rocks, so that’s probably the most important thing.”
Locket, whose core members (Garcia, guitarist Cory Bergeron and bassist Travis Morrison) have achieved more than they ever could have dreamed of when they started out 10 years ago in a band under a different name. Once reforming as Locket, they released the album All Outin late 2019. The record earned positive press from publications including Billboard, The Alternative, and New Noise, and the single “Hunnie” has racked up more than 1.6 million Spotify streams.
