Song of the Day: Small Black – The Bridge

The New York band Small Black just released its new single and you cannot miss this liquid dream. Josh Kolenik from the quartet explains: «The Bridge was the first track we wrote for Cheap Dreams, emerging from a piano motif & post-punk bass line into a propulsive beat that marks new ground for the band. The lyric is written from the perspective of my Uncle Matt, who starred in the band’s first music video Despicable Dogs in 2009. Matt was a legendary surfer, board shaper, and my boyhood idol – the king of the Long Beach boardwalk. For the last few years of his life, following a sudden stroke, he was stuck surf casting for stripers on the beach instead of out there in the waves. The song is about holding onto the optimism that another wave is coming down the pipe.» Enjoy!
