Philadelphia band Caracara have returned with a new single called ‘Hyacinth’. The track was produced by Grammy-nominated engineer and producer Will Yip. Check it out below.
“I suppose it’s like an oxygen mask, and that theoretical moment in which one should put on their own before helping someone else,” vocalist/guitarist Will Lindsay explained in a statement. “I’ve never been on a plane when the masks drop but in all honesty, I can’t say I necessarily envision myself looking out for my own safety and then politely helping a neighbor. I think a lot of us are sitting there now, frozen.”
Lindsay continued: “New preoccupations pile up, hate begets chaos begets injustice begets polarization, we try to look inward and outward at once. It’s a song about megachurches and myopia, the gods and the sciences at war on a small screen, alcohol and anxiety and anger and the internet and the aimless desire to help with everything all at once.”
