Song Premiere: Elway – “Someday, Sea Wolf” off new album “Leavetaking”

Fort Collins’ indie-punk act Elway will be releasing their upcoming album “Leavetaking” on June 25 and on physical CD on July 2nd via Red Scare.  To get you all hot and bothered for the release we’re stoked to premiere “Someday, Sea Wolf”, a bouncy, punkier little number from the release.  Here’s a cool little blurb that vocalist Tim wrote about the song:

“Wherein love is created and destroyed by happenstance, but never without leaving permanent marks. The coming and going of the highs of human emotional consciousness lends itself to my affirmation that the acts of god aren’t immoral for allowing the suffering of his creations, but amoral because god does not exist. This song is my resignation to the fact that to all things, there is a directionless existentialism. It’s not a happy song. It’s an acquiescence to the fact that, despite our beliefs to the contrary, the flow of fate* will have its way with our very souls and, as with the titular character in Jack London’s “The Sea Wolf,” it will kill the shit out of you.”
