California’s Boycomma have been our Band To Watch a number of months in the past because of their superior debut album Use Me (in reminiscence of) from final yr. The band is maintaining the momentum and vitality with the brand new Stress Ravenous EP, launched on Friday on Tormented Information.

Although solely six tracks, Stress Ravenous nonetheless has ridiculous music titles, together with “I LOVE E SEX” and “MEOWING IN PUBLIC.” However Brad Warriner’s introspection is extra searing than ever, particularly on the alt-rock catharsis “GRAPEFRUIT”: “Perhaps I’m too sympathetic/ Perhaps I’m simply stuffed with shit.” “MEOWING IN PUBLIC” snowballs into an surprising steel breakdown, adopted by the tender tearjerker “J ELLA”: “I used to be doing tremendous after which I began considering/ I don’t know a lot however I’ve my causes/ I used to be doing tremendous after which I began consuming/ About you,” Warriner opens the ballad singing. Stress Ravenous ends with “EAT ME ALIVE,” which Warriner beforehand defined:

There’s a Pinegrove lyric that actually caught with me the place principally he’s saying he went to mattress with out speaking to this particular person about one thing after which the following day he wakes and his silence went unfelt. Silence being unfelt… I don’t know, that was loopy to listen to. Everybody’s had that — the place you need to give somebody an perspective nevertheless it doesn’t even fucking faze them.

That’s how I attempted to interpret that in my music. The primary line in it’s “Are you even listening?” And never solely is that crowd engagement — sure, which is cool for a band — nevertheless it’s an actual factor that I’ve truly mentioned to any person. I’m fucking with their head, and I’m like, “Are you even listening to me? Take a look at me.” In that music, I say, “You’re appearing like I don’t provide you with each of my goddamn ears for all your issues, however you need extra as a result of I couldn’t remedy them.” I simply really feel unheard. Feeling unheard in rejection is such a loopy, gut-wrenching — like oh my god, why am I even attempting in any respect with anyone?
