We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Wyves‘ brand new song “Mar-a-Largo“, track taken from the band’s new album R U OK?, due to be released on September 28th.
There has been no stop in momentum this year as the band has been recording their second full length album R U OK? set for release in September 2018. “When creating the musical skeleton and lyrics for each song, the concept of this album was to carve out a little time capsule of what we in the band observe and experience right now.” Corey Gloden, lead vocalist comments.
Listen below to Wyves’ infectious new single “Mar-a-Largo”.
“‘Mar-a-Lago’ is a satire written in the first person as Donald Trump… I wanted to take an approach like “A Day In The Life” or “Sympathy For The Devil” to highlight his ridiculous ways by boasting about what his base loves about him. I remember first seeing him on Life Styles of the Rich and Famous when I was little. He was riding around in yachts, everything in gold… “Television taught me to read” is a pivotal lyric for this song, and makes reference to him being from the original “TV Generation”, and how he used his knowledge of TV to his advantage in gaining his base throughout the election and has continued to shut down all news stations with his daily distractions and antics.
I see him as a Wizard of Oz type of character: the smoke and whistles and cure-all potions, but really he is still the fool on the roadside who can’t fix his wheel on his carriage and is trying to figure it out like the rest of us.” – The band comments the new single.
R U OK? is to be released on September 28th.
