‘Eureka’ is the first track to be released since The By Gods’ last record, Move On in 2017.
Many bands attempt to approximate the ironic and cynical sound of early ’90s alternative rock. Most fail. Tennessee trio The By Gods succeed with aplomb. ‘Eureka‘ is driven by a dirty bass line and the attitude of vocalist/guitarist George Pauley. There’s a confidence here that is endearing. It’s that kind of confidence that makes it all sound so easy. I bet it’s not. Check it out below.
“This is the first single we’ve put out since our last record, Move On, in 2017,” says Pauley. “Some terrible things happened right at the release of that record and everything just needed to be put on hold and things have been slow to pick back up. I wrote like 35+ songs as I reflected and processed everything. We reached back out to our friend and producer Alex Newport (Death Cab For Cutie, Bloc Party, At The Drive-In, City and Colour) who produced our last album. We worked through all of the songs together and went in to record a bunch of them. He really pushed us to try new things in the studio and it was some very good therapy for me. We’re happy to get these songs out to the world.”
