Basement share new track ‘Oversized’

Basement have new album ‘Promise Everything‘ coming out January 29th 2016 via Run For Cover Records (Preorder it now). They’ve already shared the title track and now, via Billboard, you can listen to brand new track ‘Oversized’.

“This is the first softer song on the record, and it helps adds a contrast in pace to the flow of the whole album,“ vocalist Andrew Fisher tells Billboard. “When I hear (‘Oversized’) I think of early Jets To Brazil and even some of the more melodic songs from Blur like ‘Coffee and TV,’ especially with the harmonies at the end.

“‘Oversized’ is about being afraid to reveal who you really are to the people you care about and who care about you. I think this is sometimes hard because they are the people that matter to you the most and even though you assume they will accept you for who you are, you’re still so scared and in need of their approval.”
