TV Priest have shared a new single called ‘Lifesize’, their contribution to the Sub Pop Singles Club, Vol. 6. It marks the band’s first new music since releasing their debut LP, Uppers, last year. Check it out below.
“‘Lifesize’ is about the worship of the ‘strong man’ image often present in our political and cultural discourse,” frontman Charlie Drinkwater said of the song in a press release. “One where the patriarchal underpinnings of our society and political structure goes unchallenged. After a particularly grueling year, when people have looked to leaders for strength, we’ve found instead empty gestures and contempt. (‘Talk like a salesman, walks like the Pope.’) We don’t need more macho bravado; society needs empathy and compassion.”
