Bethlehem Steel – “Finger It Out”

Bethlehem Steel are releasing a new album, Party Naked Forever, next week, and so far we’ve heard “Alt Shells” and “Fig” from it. Today, they’re sharing another new track called “Finger It Out,” a smoky and skidding one about feeling uneasy when faced with the totality of existence. “Are you prepared for all of the terrible things that will happen in your life?” Rebecca Ryskalczyk sings. “Now’s not the time.”

“I started writing this song the day that Geneviève (Castrée) Elverum passed away,” Ryskalczyk explains. “I was listening to Mount Eerie in my headphones and watching the person I love play guitar while we were camped out at my brothers house in Florida. I guess this is a response to that sort of never knowing how much time you have. Detaching yourself for moments to look at things.”
