BODEGA have also released a video for their new single How Can I Help Ya?, taken from their latest album Broken Equipment.
“How Can I Help Ya? was the last track I wrote for the album after all the other tracks had been recorded,” explains Ben Hozie. “I felt like the cinema of the record was missing a certain kind of scene: one where I could give myself and the broken world the benefit of the doubt. We have it start the B-side of the vinyl which is very different than the a-side. The wonder wounded conscious-troubled protagonist of ‘Thrown’ now seeks to voice grace instead of analysis and condemnation. The band matches this new tone with playful, early Beatles-inspired power pop. When we worked out the arrangement, Tai and Adam’s groove and Dan Ryan’s riffs came together almost as quickly as the lyrics. The same is often as true of song as of living: when you try hard you die hard.”
Broken Equipment is out now via What’s Your Rupture?, available to stream or purchase HERE.
