feeble little horse have announced a new album called Girl with Fish. The follow-up to the band’s 2021 debut Hayday is out June 9 on Saddle Creek. Today’s announcement arrives with the release of the new single ‘Tin Man’, which you can check out via the accompanying video below.
Speaking about ‘Tin Man’, the band’s Lydia Slocum (who also created the album’s cover art) said in a statement: “The song is about people who use sadness to control your actions because they know you will sympathize – oftentimes when these people are investigated there really is not much inside them, they just use emotions to get what they want out of other people. I have my qualms with this sort of person.”
Ryan Walchonsk added: “‘Tin Man’ is one of the songs that represents a new style of writing for us as a group. This song went back and forth through Google Drive links, trying to come up with the best iteration of the song that we were all happy with; vocals recorded, scrapped and re-recorded, drums scrapped and re-recorded, the chorus at one point was completely different.”
“When we made Hayday, we wrote really quickly to get it done before he moved away and we couldn’t make songs anymore,” Sebastian Kinsler said of Girl with Fish. “But we realized making music with each other was too fun to walk away from. For this album, we got to take our time with every decision that went into it.”
