Delta Spirit have shared their new single, ‘The Pressure’ the latest track to be taken from their upcoming album What Is There, out on September 11th via New West Records. The track arrives alongside a video directed by Michael Parks Randa.
The track premiered with Paste Magazine, with frontman Matthew Logan Vasquez explaining, “Psychological projection is a defence mechanism in which the human ego defends itself against unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others. We live in an unmanageable world, with unrealistic expectations of ourselves and each other.
“We are both the hero and villain of our own story. While our ego is trying to keep us the former, unbeknownst to us everyone around is possibly experiencing the latter. It’s been over a year since I wrote this song, and so much has obviously changed for all of us since then. I can’t help but laugh/cringe when I hear the lyric ‘the masks we made are wearing thin’. Now in this time of COVID-19, BLM, and this upcoming election, I hope I can learn to share my convictions and experiences with those who disagree with me with the same love and grace that I am learning to offer myself”.
‘The Pressure’ follows the release of ‘It Ain’t Easy’ and ‘Home Again’, the latest tracks to be taken from Delta Spirit’s first album in six years, What Is There. The 10-song set was produced by the band and mixed by Tchad Blake (U2, Black Keys).
