MUSIC NEWS: Graduating Life Announce New Album & Reveal Two New Tracks
Graduating Life have announced their new album Grad Life II is set for release on 9th July 2021 via Pure Noise Records. Alongside the announcement of their album, they have shared In The Back and Let’s Make A Scene from the record.
“I wanted to do more electronic stuff – I’ve always had synths, but wanted to add more. “In The Back’ is fully made up of parts made on my computer. I brought it to a studio and we re-recorded the vocals for it. I like it because it feels indicative of what I’m going to be moving into with what I try next.” says vocalist Bart Thompson on In The Back. They have also released a music video for the track which can be seen below:
He adds about Let’s Make A Scene: “Obviously, I’m a huge fan of Say Anything and I like Weatherbox too. And I feel like once I was done writing it, it sounded like a Weatherbox rhythm. It’s kind of got that feel to it. The beginning is about being stuck in the past and dealing with people that are two-faced and the whole “holier than thou” thing. It’s a mix of me writing about this experience I had with a friend and then kind of leading into that middle section which is how I feel about people who act like they’re so perfect. It’s no one’s fault that everyone is forced to perform on the internet and it’s really sad. You wanna be like “fuck those people,” but it’s no one’s fault. If you’re not on the internet then you’re the odd one out and you’re not going to feel that sense of community, but that sense of community can be destructive to itself.”
