New Hampshire indie rock band Something//Something recently came out with a new EP, A LOT. Recorded with Dan Seiders at Chillhouse Studio in Charlestown, MA. The band breaks down the four songs from the album below.
This is actually a song about being a dog. The speaker is meant to be that good 'ol pup who waits around at home for you but is always stoked to see you no matter what you've been up to or how long you were gone. -trent/john
This is one from the inside out. "I don't even recall what time it was that happened" gave way to the other lines which, I think, get at some sort of mood without telling you what it is. The objective correlative as TS Eliot called it. There was no real intention to SAY anything specific with these lyrics. They just felt like they sat on the music nicely. The "I'm not a closer" part was a little double reference - one to Kyrie, he's definitely a closer (though it might be Tatum going forward). -trent
This one started the same way as Closer, but after landing on the word "Molly" it grew into something more specific. It's about a guy who has to be with Molly against all odds. In all his confused love he ultimately feels that he can't be temporary in Molly's life. -trent
This song is a bit older than the others on the EP, written between 2015 and 2016. The writing process for this one was definitely more of a cathartic release rather than an attempt to "write a song." Mainly, it just deals with frustration over people being unwilling to change. -john
