“This is the dumbest song I’ve ever written,” frontman Skylar Sarkis remarked in a statement. “I’m glad we’re releasing it early because everyone is delirious from the heat this summer. It’s perfect for that. Roll your windows down and pretend it’s about being in love or something. It’s a happy-feeling song that’s really about being overwhelmed. I always welcome an opportunity to escape reality by getting absorbed in music. It doesn’t always work, but when it does, it feels like one of the more guilt-free and even rewarding ways to numb out. It seemed intuitive to put that idea into this kind of carefree, jangly song.”
Dial M for Meds comes out September 1 via Smartpunk Records.
