Iowa City-based indie rock fivesome, Halfloves, releaed their new single “Wrong Songs” on March 10, 2017, and we’re lucky to now offer it up as a free song download. The track actually immediately followed the band’s 11-track self-titled debut which dropped on March 4th (purchase your copy RIGHT HERE) and was prodcuced by Brandon Darner (Imagine Dragons, The Envy Corps).
The band’s guitarist/vocalist Jeff Roalson commented on the song’s meanning: “‘Wrong Songs’ offers a brief exploration into modern day romance, relationships and commitment. Even in non-romantic settings, committing to any sort of plan seems to be difficult to nail down without leaving the door of possibilities slightly ajar, lest anything more interesting should come into focus. The common pressure to never miss out on anything at all seems to ironically be a prime component of why we end up sitting inside doing nothing at all. The instrumental and melodic components of ‘Wrong Songs’ serve to cloak a relatively dire subject matter in a palatable pop-rock coating. While a no-strings-attached lifestyle is often glamorized, the same insecurities that impede us from committing to someone seem to shift form and later embody the insecurities found in solitude and disconnectedness. This song is about zigging when someone else is zagging; never quite falling into a good rhythm and dancing to all of the wrong songs.”
