Feeble Little Horse shared another sampler from their upcoming album girl with fish With new single “Steamroller” today.
“Steamroller” is a predictable, piercing dose of the Pittsburgh band’s erratic noise, beginning with a cacophony of feedback captured by guitarist Sebastian Kinsler on an iPhone. The track then turns into a shoe-inspired rocker, complete with a guitar solo and a few embellishments.
The band’s vocalist and lyricist Lydia Slocum describes “Steamroller” as a song about shame, and “their most embarrassing song to sing”. The song is full of dark, vivid imagery that seems to find its narrator at the breaking point of a parasitic relationship: “I threw in the towel / I’m tired of bread / I’m the only one / Who sees me naked,” Slocum broods in some particularly memorable lines during the chorus. “I can’t handle the weight / Feeling smudgy / Since my knuckles hit / The pavement today.”
