Today’s Indie Song of the Day comes from Portland, OR. Check out Freaks of the Sea (NOW THAT’S A NAME!)
The story the guys from the band came up with is also pretty cool: A 21st century boy grows up living in the shadow of his father. His mother tells him he is special, that he has a unique gift to offer to this world without specification. After excelling throughout adolescence and fleeing his nest, he realizes that he has nothing special to offer. He is simply a cog in the machine, another foot soldier trudging directionless into the 9 to 5, eyes glazed, and locked into a screen. The only real gift he possesses is the gift of a digital life.... Power up, Log in, Conform. He is a hypocrite now, the ideas he believes in most are the traits he dislikes the most in himself.
Additionally CT from the band said: "Hypocrite is bold because so many songs are so ambiguous. It's alternative bubblegum with a sarcastic cherry on top."
