BODEGA have released a lyric video for their new single Thrown, taken from their forthcoming album Broken Equipment

“Thrown was an attempt at a self-portrait track. The older I get the less I trust my own thoughts and perceptions of self  ——> I realise most of my values and judgments come from the records, films, books, and advertisements I have consumed my whole life,” explains Ben Hozie. “Recognising this ‘thrown-ness,’ while slightly disturbing, has been a source of inspiration for my creative mind. If the mind can only output what has been presented —> provide it with the proper input. You can remake yourself entirely at the drop of a (top)hat. The inputs I selected for this lyric: James Joyce and Bob Dylan. The music, to me, is a synthesis of many of the stylistic motifs our group has developed over the past few years: syncopated bass over a slow-shifting sea of guitar harmonics, violent guitar spams with machine influenced but human-played drums; plus male/female vox alternating between spoken text raps and melody.”

Broken Equipment is due for release on 11th March 2022 via What’s Your Rupture?.
