Five-piece punk band Spanish Love Songs are sharing their new single and music video “Beachfront Property”.
Lead vocalist and songwriter, Dylan Slocum shares: “This is a song about the apathy and anxiety that I see in myself and my friends. Especially concerning the chaos that seems to be coming our way.
On any given day our anxiety feels hyperbolic, or is the punchline to a joke, or keeps us up all night, but we don’t really do anything about it because it feels insurmountable and inescapable. It’s not meant to preachy – life is difficult. But we have to try to call ourselves on our shit if we ever hope to change anything”.
On a more literal level, the track focuses on relevant topics such as climate change, student loan debt. And gun violence because Slocum obsesses over these problems. He says: “The answers seem so obvious, yet nothing ever really changes. It’s tiring”.
