Ought – “Beautiful Blue Sky”

Ought – “Beautiful Blue Sky”

Ought’s debut full-length was released in 2014 and is, at its core, a testament of human resiliency. More Than Any Other Day is fraught with anxiety bordering on despair, but at certain points throughout, all of that darkness produces more than a few positive turns-of-phrase. Ought can’t help but look on the bright side, so songs about crippling depression or mundane daily tasks are never as dark as one might expect from a post-punk band. Ought just announced that they will release the follow-up to More Than Any Other Day on the Montreal-based label Constellation Records. The new album is titled Sun Coming Down and “Beautiful Blue Sky” is its first single. Lyrically, it’s a song centered around a series of observations — light clinging to someone’s shoulders, a high-rise condo, a big, beautiful, blue sky — but it’s also a multi-layered critique of development and unending consumerism. Another perfect happy-sad song; listen below.
