Boy Scouts – “That’s Life Honey”
Oakland-based Boy Scouts, the indie project of Taylor Vick, have announced their new album Wayfinder, to follow 2019’s Free Company. Lead single “That’s Life Honey” is out today, and it’s a beautiful ballad that grounds feelings of guilt and pain by looking to nature: “The ocean needs no one to blame/ It’s the master of beautiful rage/ I’m the master of inexplicable shame/ Write it down and rewire my brain.”
Read what Vick said about the song:
This song is about trying to make light of a shitty situation. Having a circumstance that sucks, like wanting to go to therapy but you can’t afford it, and fantasizing about a world where you could get a chip implanted or have some surgery that rewires your brain and resolves you from whatever problems you have. This song is mostly my attempt at writing a tragicomedy, combined with true experiences of figuring out how to open up to people.
