Chicago indie-rock band Slow Pulp dropped their new song “At It Again” today. This is the third release from their upcoming debut album Moveys (out Oct. 9 via Winspear). Slow Pulp self-produced each song on the record.
“At It Again” kickstarts with a quick-paced guitar, implementing a heavier sound compared to their previous two singles. Lead singer Emily Massey immediately draws listeners in on the opening line “Oh come on, please take it back,” with her surf-punk vocal style.
“I had been staying at my parents quarantined away from my regular life and my regular people and I was doing a terrible job taking care of myself,” Massey said. “I was finding it very difficult to muster up any type of energy or motivation to work on the record. I had been in positions in the past where my mental health had gotten the best of me and I couldn’t seem to finish anything that I started. I felt like I had reverted back to a place that I had worked so hard to get out of, and I felt like somehow everyone knew. Back on my bullshit in a completely novel situation.”
Slow Pulp also shared a music video for “At It Again,” with the band jamming out together on a beach as the sun sets. The band also tumbles around in the sand before picking themselves up, seemingly a metaphor for Massey’s meaning behind the song.
