With their new album set to be released on May 10, Manchester Orchestra have released their first track off of Simple Math. The title track off the album is a somber tune about the occasional invisibility of life and the doubts one faces when you feel like you are the only one. The song begins slow and builds to a crashing orchestral climax, proving all the more that the band can go from creating a catchy tune, to crafting a song that you can connect to and feel. Check out the lyric video for the song below and, if you are anything like me, prepare to hit the play button numerous times.
The band’s website describes the new album as “a story about a 23-year old who questions everything from marriage to love to religion to sex. It’s chock full of monster riffs, vigorous string arrangements, deep hooks and has miles of melodies that encase a compelling coming-of-age story told in the first person, intimately written and sung by (Andy) Hull.”
