Canadian alt rock band Locket have announced their new studio album “Superluminal” out on November 10th, 2023, via Fearless Records.
Today, the band has shared the video for the new single “Kilayear”. Watch it here.
The track is a power pop gem that is sprinkled with plenty of sonic heft and grit. Razor sharp riffs, bouncy, singalong choruses, and emotive verse define the song, which appears on their sophomore effort “Superluminal”.
“Thematically, this track is at the core of what this record is about”, the band shares. “This song is about dealing with the pace at which things change as you get older… how much can happen in a few short years. Learning to cope with things we think we missed out on… unable to slow things down. It feels like mental gymnastics at times, navigating where you think you are vs where you’re really at… but the world keeps turning”.
Recording their second full-length, frontman Brad Garcia states: “When ‘band world’ got put on pause back in 2020, it almost felt like a sigh of relief. We found this sense of freedom in being able to just write music for no other reason than writing music. With real pressure we could just write riffs, not overthink anything. And I think because of that, sonically, the record feels so authentically us”.
He continues: “Thematically, I approached writing this record from this place of not knowing what’s next (for the band or for ourselves as individuals). It ended up being this cathartic process of learning to deal with this central part of your life being forced across a tightrope, and ultimately learning to be alright if it slips and falls apart, because it might make way for a new chapter. We started writing this album as band guys in our twenties. By the time it comes out we’ll be in our thirties, married, with a clearer understanding of who we are as people that have this insane privilege of making music together where people actually listen. We don’t take that for granted. Also, we all think the album fuckin’ rocks, so that’s probably the most important thing”.
