“My favorite new rock song I’ve heard so far this year.” – Luke O’Neil, BULLETT
Lawrence, Kansas-based duo, Tree Machines, comprised of Patrick Aubry and Douglas Wooldridge, are set to release their debut self-titled EP on March 31st, preceded by the provocatively titled single “Fucking Off Today,” which has just made its premiere exclusively via BULLETT, which proclaims the tune song is the “best new rock song of the year so far.”
The new EP opens with this giant-sounding track, running without the bother of learning to crawl, and lyrically capturing the idea of not caring in a way no artist has before. “With open mouths to feed, we’re fucking off today,” Wooldridge sings with ultimate conviction, adding an ironic touch that gives the song even more potency.
The anthemic aspects of this message were borne of Wooldridge and Aubry’s observations of the on-off, blissed-out-but-strung-out club kids they’d see during their gigs as lighting designers.
Capturing these confusing feelings of youth, and longing for something so much bigger than what they refer to as “this Midwest lifestyle,” is in the band’s DNA, which could be why we haven’t heard a song about apathy delivered in such blunt terms until now. For it to work, it’d have to be a tune with a melody and hook as strong as found here to be believable, especially for a debut single with “fucking” in the title!
Tree Machines pulls it off.
