Communication and conflict resolution feel deader than ever these days. Some things need to be firm boundaries in life but a lot of people are also quick to stay cynical and empathy free regardless of any room for a better outcome, and that is a drag and not likely to end well. Poison Boys have a new, very classic rock sounding Stonesy number that deals with losing a close connection and wishing you could have found some way to sort it.
This songs self-assured strut paired with a slightly hesitant sense of bittersweet inevitability was a cool refuge for me this morning when I am dealing with similar shit and also how fleeting time is. Choose your words carefully, cuz they can sting and that might be all you get. Life can be brutal enough without us adding to it.
The track features backup vocalist Dana Athens on layered soul vocals, a 70’s slide guitar in the bridge, and long-time Poison Boys touring guitarist “Sleepy Doc” Julius Lange on keys. Follow this link for more.
