Darwin Deez has released his new album, ‘10 Songs That Happened When You Left Me With My Stupid Heart’.
Out today (Friday, 31st August) via Lucky Number, it’ll see him tour the UK later this year, starting with a set at Underground Festival on 29th September.
“Ever since I bought my first CD – Last Splash by the Breeders – I’ve been internally railing against the kind of vague nonsensical stuff that passed for lyrics in the 90s,” says Darwin. “It’s not that it was objectively bad, but it was so cryptic and over my 13-year-old head that it infuriated me.”
“Everyone is getting a free pass, lyrically,” he continues. “I’ve always respected country songwriters because they’re some of the last ones standing, lyrically. They’re some of the last writers not to be getting away with murder out here. They don’t mess around in Nashville.”
