Another new release for you today, this one is by a band from Hong Kong called Oh! Nullah. Comprising of Ben Tse, Nic Tse, Ding Lee and Glenn Bogador, they're a diy outfit that share a love of "90's pop punk, indie rock, midwest emo, DC hardcore and all that good stuff..."
Originally a post hardcore band called The Lovesong, they morphed into their present incarnation following the departure of guitarist Ephraim Bano and the introduction of replacement Glenn Bogador who had previously been a member of metalheads, Shepherds The Weak. Active since 2014, they've already released an album titled She Spoke In Tongues, I Spoke Incompetence and a self titled single and now a healthy work ethic has seen the release of sophomore album, Jaded Summer. You can check it out "name your price" here : http://ohnullah.bandcamp.com/album/jaded-summer
Sounding like something that could easily fit into the Dischord Records' back catalogue, this is the title track from the new album......
" I wrote this song for a good friend of mine after his mother passed away. It was a difficult time for him and his family, and I wanted to write something which reflected those moments as honestly as I could but also offered hope because I didn’t know how else to respond in a time like that. It’s a tribute to him, his family and his beautiful mother."
Tired eyes won’t rest inside this broken logic
Can we carry the weight of time
Back from our failures?
The season’s changing
Will we feel fine without retaining
The things we’ve lost, those dear to our lives
The moments passing?
This summer is changing our lives
Never knew what winter had lost
Springtime has found us a dream
Autumn air extending the cost
Jaded summer can’t erase
All retired, sober pain
Jaded summer won’t forget to tell us
Our minds rely on highs (So hesitant inside)
That will shape our lives (To solitude confide)
Inconsistent thoughts (No one really knows)
Won’t join the dots
Take the path that works (That no one travels on)
Mocked, unseen, absurd (You’re going the wrong way)
Where the path shall end (Time might find a friend)
No one knows when
The time will pass
Surely sadness won’t change our lives
It’s only emotion
But what I’ve thought would turn out right
Was something different
The world goes on without my thoughts
The same things happening
Finding meaning to call my own
But would it find me?
