Fresh out of Cali, Spiritual Camp have just dropped their frenetic angst-ridden new single "I Feel Bad Bein' Me."
Like a rush of blood to the head, this track is a crunching dose of punk-rock straight out of the late 80s. It's a big "fuck you" to the current state of the world, with the band seemingly disillusioned by what's going on in their country.
Driven by thunderous guitar riffs and vocalist Michael Bingham's repetitive cries of "oh," this is a great introduction to what Spiritual Camp are all about. Speaking on the track Bingham explains:
It's about walking into rooms full of people and tripping out on myself... tryin' to come on strong like an earthquake but comin' on like a little headache. I project my own self image onto social interactions and it really throws a wrench into my good times. We live in a gross, damaged country that promotes a culture of non-fulfillment, but everyone has these calculated images of themselves they want to project onto the world. I don't blame anyone - it's a product of the design.
"I Feel Bad Bein' Me" is the first taste of Spiritual Camp's forthcoming EP, Police State, set for release June 8.
