We’ve got a stream of the opening track off Elway‘s new album, “For the Sake of the Bit” for you!
“Inches” is about super important people who write about music on the internet and how much their opinions matter. Tim Browne (guitar/vocals) had this to say about the song:
“‘Inches’ is dedicated to those among us whose ‘contributions’ to art or music are either unworded shit talk or obsequious brown-nosery found sandwiched between Hello Fresh and T-Mobile banner ads. If you read enough of these vapid kissasses’ bullshit, you might find yourself thinking their opinion somehow means something. I wrote this song to insist that, no, your shitty, disaffected review of a band you don’t like and your 25,000 word rim job of a band you do like don’t mean shit, and you create nothing but ad revenue. All art, but especially punk and indie, belongs to those who create it and support it – not those who can’t even conjure enough creative impulse to start a lousy punk band and can only criticize and lick boots. Fuck all y’all.”
You can check out “Inches” below, and the rest of the album on your streaming service of choice. The album will be out on vinyl and CD this Friday. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have important things to say on the internet about music, and people are dying to hear them. ELWAY I LOVE YOU YOU ARE THE GREATEST PLEASE LOOK AT ME!
