JOEY FOURR has shared new single "Uhmericka". A wistful, dreamy exploration of the "American Dream", there's an arch disconnect between the track's charming sound and the complexities of its subject matter. Like the USA, if you scratch the record's surface you'll find that there's a lot happening underneath.
FOURR had this to say: “i have a luv hate affair with the myth of uhmericka . i have a luv hate affair with how it balances atrocities against its own people as well as doing whatever horrific things it wants outside of its border yet as a creative culture it can be a beautiful source of inspiration for the popular , the colourful , the cartoony and the unreal. every colour you can imagine is physical . everything it touches seems to shimmer , for the good and the bad are both ugly. beauty is set at an unbelievably high standard, allowing so our imperfections thrive and live on, we decide what happens next with forks spinning in hot spaghetti .”
"Uhmericka" will appear on FOURR's sophomore record Velvet Realness which is due in spring 2017.
