Fresh off the back of his recent US tour with Alex G and LVL UP, Brandon Can’t Dance today shares “Angelina”, the new single from his forthcoming physical debut album Graveyard of Good Times.
“Angelina” is a straight shot of vitriol, all grizzled, grumbling guitars and haunting lyrics. Entirely self-recorded and produced, Brandon’s music is unique and diverse, and this song converges at the point where his songwriting melds the sombre tones of Elliott Smith with strains of ‘90s Sub Pop-inflected grunge.
Brandon says that the song is “about a girl own her own doing her best to deal with severe depression during a period where her friends are starting families and careers. I drew from southern gothic writings and tried to bring that out in the music itself.”
A truly diverse collection of songs from one of America’s most compelling new songwriters, Graveyard of Good Times is as cathartic and melancholic as it is sardonic and playful.
