The second single from Hamilton’s Basement Revolver is the quick building, emotional anthem on par with the 90s soft-grunge sound of the Cranberries. “Words” is the powerful pop medley from the debut EP out through Fear of Missing Out Records on July 15th.
Frontwoman Chrisy Hurn said this about the track:
“‘Words’ was written when I was in my last semester of university. I lived downtown and school was up on the mountain and somewhat inaccessible by bus. I was writing my honours psych thesis at the time, as well as many other papers, when it all began to feel meaningless. No matter what I said, in the end, words are just words, they can be stringed together to form something powerful but without context they become as mundane and uncontrollable as one’s commute to and from school. Similarly, a paper is just a paper, a degree is just a degree, and there is so much more to life than the plans and the empires that we build for ourselves.”
