Alternative rockers Prey Drive unveil new single “Pancakes”!

UK alternative rockers Prey Drive are teaming up with Krod Records to release their new single “Pancakes”. This song is from the band’s upcoming album, “Once more with Feelings”, available at the end of the year.

On this release, the band comments:

The concept was Brads idea and was brought to life by our friend Charlie Wallis, who also produced our last video for “More Than Magic”. The video begins where we left off, with Brad dressed as a magician, but it then snowballs into a bizarre and surreal series of events that sees Brad embarking on a journey to fulfill a lifelong dream. Without wanting to give too much away, the video’s dress-code was largely influenced by the 1980’s and contains footage that some viewers may find arousing.

Lyrically Brad says: The style of writing I used for pancakes was to make the song almost seem tongue in cheek and silly to disguise the sheer heartbreak of the subject matter at hand.

It’s about remembering a time that once was –
‘she used to wake me in the morning, she made pancakes for me’

And the point where it all changed –
‘Your words cut like a knife’

And how seeing that person everyday still hurts –
‘seeing your face is getting harder to take. Your eyes are open wide. They remind me of better days. ‘

At the end I reference the singer from Weezer –
‘Like Rivers once said, you’ve left me undone, like Rivers said I’ve come undone.’

The Sweater Song is one of my all time favourite songs and a huge inspiration for this song in which he sings about a thread from a sweater as a metaphor for his heart coming undone. I wanted to do something similar with pancakes…
