One of our favorite new bands is PWR BTTM. We've already shared "Big Beautiful Day" from their upcoming album, and now comes "Answer My Text." As you can hear and watch in the lyric video above, the duo doesn't take too kindly a suitor who doesn't give them the time of day and the indifference kills em. It's something everyone has been through, but haven't been able to channel the rage quite like this.
Here's what Liv Bruce had to say about the song on the band's Facebook page:
It’s 2017 and I can’t believe I still waste my time on boys who don’t text back! What am I doing? What are THEY doing? Is the phenomenon of ‘ghosting’ just the latest version of the same struggle for commitment that’s been raging for millennia, or do smartphones make it easier than ever to ignore someone you’re ‘seeing’ 95% of the time? The answer is probably yes to both. Fuck! I started writing this song over a year ago and it still makes me mad. I’m mad at the boy I wrote this about, who is actually a fictional composite of like 50 boys. I’m mad at myself for the times I’ve kept people I care about waiting for a response. Right now in my #personal #life I’m trying to work on my relationships with technology and people so I can better honor needs and boundaries moving forward, but before I could do that I had to exorcize my rage and despair by turning them into a song called Answer My Text. Here is that song.
PWR BTTM's Pageant is out on May 17.
