Boston Alt-Grunge band Sunshine Riot has released a new one today! The song is entitled “Room To Moan” and it’s both loud and quiet at the same time. It’s also the third single from the band’s forthcoming April EP – Loud, Bright and Violent – which was recorded with Steve Albini at Electrical Audio here in Chicago.
“Room To Moan” ponders the afterlife and what comes next, all in Sunshine Riot’s distinct ’90s-inspired ball-of-noise style. Bandmember Johnny Orton had the following to say about the new single:
“There’s a line in Soundgarden’s ‘The Day I Tried To Live’, it goes ‘The lives we make / Never seem to get us anywhere but dead’. It always struck me. There’s something gripping about that lyric — I think we all do tend to make a life, at least in part, because we don’t want to think about the one certainty that makes us alive. Death is an awfully scary thing — I’m not sure what comes next. I hope it’s not nothing, forever.”
