Washington-based indie prog band Fellowcraft have shared their emotional new video entitled ‘This Is How the World Ends’. The song is the fourth single taken from their upcoming studio album ‘This Is Where You’ll Find Me’, due out February 26th, 2021.
The band comments:
“JR and I wrote this song about a year ago, before the whole COVID-19 mess happened. But when we were finally able to get into the studio to record it in August (after having our recording session postponed half a year due to the pandemic) it was a really cathartic moment for all of us. Five months of penned up frustrations and pain from being in lockdown just started to flow out. We cried a little… OK, a lot.”
shares guitarist Pablo Anton.
“Lyrically, I wanted to juxtapose the need for social media, and the damage that I’ve seen it do. On one hand I’m more accessible than I’ve ever been, but I also see endless echo chambers, virtue signalling, victim blaming, harassment, and shaming… where does it all end? Is it worth it?” adds frontman and guitarist Jon Ryan MacDonald.
From the emotive picked guitar opening to the great group harmonies this track is superbly well crafted. Such a great vocal performance from JR Macdonald. The track feels so open with loads of breathing room for the emotion to seep out. Hell, even the drums are pouring its heart out. I may have found my new favourite band.
