Los Angeles-based band Guppy have shared ‘A Voicemail for the Mayor’, the latest single off their upcoming album Big Man Says Slappydoo. The track follows previous offerings ‘Alien’, ‘If I Wanted To’, and ‘I’m Your Daddy Now’. Check it out below.
“This was my attempt at writing a love song with my fully formed adult brain,” the band’s J Lebow explained in a statement. “I generally shy away from love songs because something about love doesn’t feel like an emotion that belongs to me so how could I possibly have a point of view on it? “A Voicemail to the Mayor” is an avoidant attachment style anthem. I was starting to really catch feelings for someone after a long period of intense personal growth, and I felt truly afraid that falling in love would rob me of all that growth. This is sort of a joyful temper tantrum of insisting I don’t want love while actively falling into it.”
Guppy’s new LP, which was produced by Sarah Tudzin of illuminati hotties, arrives on April 22 via Lauren Records.
