Astronauts, etc. — Oakland’s Anthony Ferraro — shared “The Room,” the second single from its forthcoming new album Living In Symbol today. Ferraro says of the song:
“Addiction, depression, unhealthy love, bad ideology. They’re all rooms that can start to feel like home, with its safety and familiarity, if you spend enough time in them. I wrote this song while watching my good friend try and fail to leave such a room. I hoped to represent both sides in the song – the comfort, even euphoria, of being in the room, and the dread of realizing you may never leave.
There are nice rooms, too, but this song isn’t about those.”
Living In Symbol, which was co-produced by Chaz Bear of Toro y Moi and includes the previously released single “The Border,” is out July 27 on Company Records; it is available for pre-order now via Company and streaming services.
