Boston foursome Answerman has released a brand new song entitled “Black Heart.” The new single is also the lead track off the band’s debut album, Black Light Poster, which will be released on April 21st. “Black Heart” spans a spirited spectrum of Post-Punk, Psych, and Surf-Pop, while also being a reflection of how we’re all feeling, trapped in ongoing patterns of depression and anxiety.
Band member Sam Pitino had the following to say about the release:
“‘Black Heart’ is about living with depression and anxiety. It’s about the thoughts that keep repeating in our heads while we’re in that hopeless state. It’s a feeling that we can all relate to — you just retreat inside your head and get on this treadmill of negative existential thoughts. It’s not a good place at all. You feel trapped, alone, isolated and like there’s no way out.”
