US punk five-piece Spanish Love Songs have unleashed their latest album, Brave Faces Everyone and to celebrate have revealed a music video for the track ‘Beachfront Property’. If you’re yet to come across this band, this song is a great introduction. The track is the band’s insight and feelings towards the many issues and problems that many of us face in today’s everchanging world. Lead vocalist and songwriter Dylan Slocum shared with us that:
“This is a song about the apathy and anxiety that I see in myself and my friends, especially concerning the chaos that seems to be coming our way. On any given day our anxiety feels hyperbolic, or is the punchline to a joke, or keeps us up all night, but we don’t really do anything about it because it feels insurmountable and inescapable. It’s not meant to preachy — life is difficult. But we have to try to call ourselves on our shit if we ever hope to change anything.
This album is us honing in on what we think makes our band resonate with people — namely, the feeling that you’re not alone. These are songs about looking outward and finding that, for all our differences, most of us are just trying to get by as the world is going to hell around us. We don’t have any grand ambitions beyond that — we just want people to feel acknowledged. There’s comfort in knowing we’re on the same sinking ship. We want the album to be a knowing nod and a way to make the world a slightly more bearable, even if it’s just for 40 minutes.”
