We're elated to share the newest single from our forthcoming album MASS today! It's called STILL LIFE, and it's the fifth chapter of the story. The video, directed and edited by Jerry, is premiering at Thoughts Words Action today! The full album will be here on September 29th (pre-order here).
STILL LIFE is a composite of words and sentiments Buick heard in response to voicing her concerns at different points throughout her time in Massachusetts. Writing this song felt like a fever dream for her. The video's frenetic energy mirrors the feelings of being gaslighted, and of being told to metabolize injuries large and small. We hope the song and visuals move you!

MASS IS THREE WEEKS AWAYYYYYY! Grab the vinyl and accompanying memoir before they sell out! We love you, we appreciate you, and we're more than ready to share this album with you. The countdown is on! Here is some advance praise for MASS from Jedd Beaudoin of NPR / KMUW:
The LP’s lyrics amount to a soul-searching exploration of isolation, friendship and self-determination that is supported by music that alternates between the cathartic weight of doom metal and the familiarity and resolve of pop music.
The unlikely combination results in a record emotionally rewarding and deeply memorable. (An arresting spoken word track that closes out the collection is worth the journey alone.)
The next time you hear from us, the record will be here. Can't wait.
Yours in autonomy and loud riffs,
Buick & Jerry, FC
