New Jersey’s The Warhawks has released a brand new single and accompanying music video for “Fade Away.” The new song marries the swagger of classic BritPop with the kind of blue-collared grit that has kept their home state a musical hotbed for decades.
Frontman Matt Orlando explains the song’s sonic imprint as the natural result of a recent Oasis and Stone Roses listening binge paired with the band’s longstanding penchant for heavier rock. He describes the inner demons at play in the lyrics as:
“the internal struggles that are so common among people, yet have the ability to feel so unique to each individual. Overthinking, rumination, insecurities — these all get in the way of the things that make us truly feel alive.”
“They can suck the light out of the brightest moments. Make you feel like you’re not even there. True isolation that no one can relate to. But in reality it is sometimes this darkness that connects people. That human experience. We’re more alike than we realize. If we can just get out of our own way, there lies a life worth living.”
The video for “Fade Away” is accompanied by a monochrome visual that chronicles the band’s tour of England in May of this year.

The Warhawks will be celebrating today’s release with a show at Warehouse On Watts in Philadelphia. Joining them on the bill are Lito and The Shepherds, The Bronze Age, and Cabana Wear. Tickets and more info available here.
