Have You Heard? Preoccupations - Espionage

Preoccupations - Espionage

The track feels like it’s skulking around backstreets uninvited, scouring for information.

‘Espionage’ is a suitable title for Preoccupations’ comeback: the track feels like it’s skulking around backstreets uninvited, scouring for information. According to songwriter Matt Flegel, the band’s new record ‘New Material’ is ”an ode to depression and self-sabotage”, and there’s an undeniably destructive element to its first track.

“Finishing ‘Espionage’ was when I realized, that I looked at the rest of the lyrics and saw the magnitude of what was wrong,” he continues in a press release. “Change is everything / But it’s nowhere to be found” he repeats incessantly through the track’s most intense passage, and there’s a catharsis from making it through a track as dense and full of darkness as this one, for both writer and listener.
