Should you be looking to get lost in some chaotic sounds, childhood friends-turned-musical partners, NAWAS have the perfect track for you. Dropping “I Feel Like Breaking Up Today”, the pair bring together multiple genres, resulting in a genre-bending production that promises to hypnotise listeners with its electric bass and ethereal vocals. And, while stimulating in sound, upon analysis, the track has a much darker core.
”’I Feel Like Breaking Up Today’ is three minutes of brutal honesty. It’s about facing the uncomfortable hard shit because you’re at an emotional boiling point,” explains the duo. “During the songwriting process, we kept second-guessing ourselves and the end result was pretty aggressive and raw. It’s like the song had to psych itself up because being authentic and committing to being someone else’s bad guy doesn’t always feel good right away.”
To ensure that the impressive nature of the new release was confirmed, band members JakeNawas and Ben McDaniel also offered us its accompanying music video. Set in a deserted Nashville-bound bar in the early hours of the morning, the duo is set ablaze by a blanket of neon lights and trippy filters as they serenade their viewers, further reinforcing the intense theme of the track.
With the new cut not only standing as a tribute to the alternative work being done by the pair, but also as a seamless introduction to their upcoming EP, it becomes clear that 2022 is set to be a very busy year for them, and we cannot wait to see what they will do next.
