Despite the frigid temperatures that have blown through the East Coast, New York’s own Public Access T.V. have emerged with the ever-warming, “Lost in the Game.” That is to say, it sounds like a bubbly summer tune, but beneath its candy shell is a much more down-and-out feeling.
Amidst busty horns, the steady stroke of a cowbell, and a riff that embodies a pool-party liveliness, John Eatherly narrates with indifference toward his current state of affairs. “The days go by / And I wait for the night / So what / Who cares? / Goodbye.”
For those brushing shoulders with the post-punk quartet for the first time, the single serves as the second offering from the upcoming sophomore effort, Street Safari. Set to drop February 23 via Cinematic, the release will be supported by a transcontinental tour with a pit stop at our own Bottom of the Hill.
