Other Half have released their new single Jollies With The Boys, taken from their upcoming sophomore album Soft Action.
“This is one of the first songs we wrote for the album that properly clicked,” explains vocalist Cal. “It’s heavy and angular and proved a sturdy vehicle to inspect some really unpleasant stuff lyrically. It’s a call to arms with no cause, an arbitrary bit of bile about punching down because it’s the easiest option.”
“I’m always interested in what motivates people to do horrible things and I figure a lot of the time it’s just the only road open to them; the anger is white-hot but misdirected. I guess this is just my way of saying I wish I had the same energy to fight against all the awful stuff going on in the world but instead just sit on my arse and write songs about the idea of being angry. Lazy, apathetic millennial.”
