Oh no! It sounds like Marissa Paternoster got dumped! Or at least she’s writing a fairly straightforward midtempo rock song from the perspective of somebody who got dumped.
In a press statement she says, “It is seldom that any Screaming Females song is about just one thing. ‘Mourning Dove’ is the only exception that I can really think of, a song about being profoundly in love while simultaneously being profoundly heartbroken.”
This band just gets better and better. I first saw them when they opened for the Arctic Monkeys and was blown away. Back then, I wrote “My only criticism is that I wish the drummer would hit the drums harder. He seemed a little too dainty compared to the absolute badassery of the other two.” Seems like at some point over the last thirteen years, the drummer has caught up!
