Open secrets – Upset loves Woahnows. Bright eyed long-term readers may even remember them making an appearance in our first ever issue. Now, we’re delighted to bring you a first listen to a brand new track.
Taken from a new 7” single, (out digitally this Friday 26th February, physically on 1st April) ‘Mess’ is the sort of laid-back, lofi gem that keeps Woahnows so close to our hearts. Melodic but packing enough muscle and invention to raise the odd hair, it only goes to confirm one of the best underground talents on the metaphorical block.
It will drop alongside another new track, ‘Person Up’. Talking about the release, singer/guitarist Tim Rowing-Parker explains: “Everyone in the band had a weird year personally, and playing music together was one of the saving graces that kept life fun. These songs are about just that, dealing with the bad stuff in the best way you can.
“‘Mess’ is about falling out of love. You both know it and it hurts to admit it, but there’s no getting away from that nagging feeling that it’s just not going to work out.”
