Noble Kin, the Brooklyn-based project of singer/songwriter Keith Polasko, premiered the second single from their upcoming Let The End Times Roll full-length today via a feature with Pop Matters. This latest release, entitled “Yesterday’s Broadcast,” is built soundly on its off-kilter and masterfully arranged guitars. Polasko manages to expertly keep the balance between rhythmically intriguing and emotionally engaging, while still having enough pop appeal to keep a more mainstream audience bobbing their heads. As the chorus opens up, we see the hopefulness of the soundscape combine with a sense of nostalgia to deliver a platform for Noble Kin’s message of perseverance in the face of difficult situations. You can listen to it now on Soundcloud, Spotify or any of your other favorite streaming sites.
A Note from Keith Polasko Regarding ‘Yesterday’s Broadcast’:
Phantom limbs occur after amputation sometimes. You lose an arm or leg but the sensation of attachment remains. Likewise, you can try to let go of a toxic past but often it’s impossible to fully escape the insidious effects of abuse or codependence. While it’s possible to move on with life, lingering self-doubt can cause stealth confusion and indecision. Simply trying to go about your business feels frustratingly like flipping on a radio that only tunes in to old irrelevant broadcasts. This song is meant to acknowledge all that and also encourage broken people to keep recovering the parts of themselves they’ve lost.
