Flock of Dimes has released a new song called ‘Hard Way’. The track is the latest offering from Jenn Wasner’s upcoming album Head of Roses and it arrives with an accompanying video shot in Joshua Tree, CA. Check out the Lachlan Turczan-directed clip below.
“Although I didn’t fully understand when I wrote it, this song is an example of the power of the subconscious mind to hide truths from ourselves that we’re not yet ready to see,” Wasner said of the new song in a statement. “When I wrote this song I was still in the throes of new love, and I thought I was writing a straightforward, earnest love song. But when I tried to record it, something about the tone of it was eerie, strange, a bit darker than I would have expected. It wasn’t until long after I wrote it that I became aware of its odd foreshadowing of what was to come—that something I intended to be bright and hopeful in the moment was floating on top of a deep current of unease.”
Head of Roses is out April 2 via Sub Pop. Previously, Flock of Dimes shared the singles ‘Two’ and ‘Price of Blue’.
