It’s Monday, and it was really damn hard getting out of bed this morning. But nothing like a slap in the face in the form of some good, loud, pulsing music to get your footing right. And Worst Gift, a new Toronto-based three-piece, are here to help. Listen to their new track “What’s Another 40 Bucks Between Friends,” off their debut World’s Worst, dropping September 22 via Art of the Uncarved Block.
“It’s about feeling like you have the capacity to be good and that you are inherently, and not knowing when you started feeling otherwise. Recognizing where you went wrong, and not being able to feel it when you’re doing the right thing finally due to negative self-talk.” – Sooz, Worst Gift (on the meaning behind “What’s Another 40 Bucks Between Friends?”)
Filled with nine genre-blending break-up songs that tap on social collapse, personal failure, and as Sooz told us, meditations on trying to be good, the album is right up our alley. And this track will go perfect with that coffee in your cup. So listen up. –Maya Eslami
