MUSIC NEWS: Spanish Love Songs Release New Single ‘Losers 2’
Spanish Love Songs have revealed their new single Losers 2, taken from their forthcoming third album Brave Faces Everyone.
“This is another case of taking what we do well and trying to focus it outwards,” comments vocalist and songwriter Dylan Slocum. “I’ve had plenty of people ask why the songs continue to get bleaker and bleaker, but I feel like the answer is pretty obvious. This is the world we know. It’s the world I see my friends stuck in, and that I’ve seen my family stuck in. Everyone works themselves to the bones to just survive. Not to say that we’re not incredibly privileged — I’m aware — but I wanted to look outward and just acknowledge that for the roughly 99% of us, life is an endless grind, so it’s okay to feel down on it. Like, of course you’re anxious when you could fall and hit your head and have you entire life derailed by hospital bills.
“So Losers is the anthem where we try to be defiant and throw up a middle finger — whatever, “we’re losers forever.” But this is the hangover. It’s us wrapping our heads around that grind, and feeling like we can’t escape it. And like so much of the album, it’s about trying to empathise with others over this collective gloom.”
Brave Faces Everyone is due for release on 7th February via Pure Noise Records, available to pre-order HERE.
